Photographer's Note

This is another photo from my trip down to Port Elliot. It was a very cold and windy day but it did not have a hugh effect on the view.

Port Elliot was selected by Governor Sir Henry Edward Fox Young in 1850 as the site for the ocean port of the Murray River trade. He named the place after his friend, Sir Charles Elliot. The township was proclaimed in 1854, the same year in which the first railway line in South Australia was opened between Goolwa and Port Elliot, this being constructed to convey the produce to the overseas port. However, the Governor's choice was unfortunate as the bay was not well enough protected, and following several shipwrecks, the anchorage was transferred to the lee of Granite Island at Victor Harbor in 1864.

The Photo: Resized, add some saturation, cropped some of the bottom which included a cement fence, and then added the border.
