In Quarantine

During our recent trip to Sydney, we went to see the old quarantine station at the North Head in Manly. The station was used to quarantine ship passengers and crew who may have been infected with dangerous diseases.

It’s interesting to see that the traditional first class/second class division carried over from the ship to the quarantine station. That’s the first class dining room above. Across the road there is the tiny telephone office, below.
