Historic Lanes Cove

Here is a postcard produced for the Shute and Merchant Co., (check the website--it is very nicely done). Shute and Merchant Co. was a large fish packing company in the late 1800's and early 1900's (since purchased by Gorton's of Gloucester).

These postcards were given away as promotional items. You get an idea of scale of the operation of granite loading in this time.
