Shore School, North Sydney, was previously the home of famous gold miner, merchant and parliamentarian Bernhardt Otto Holtermann, who financed a major photographic project covering Sydney in order to promote Australia overseas. To this end, a 27-metre tower was purpose-built by Holtermann at his home to be used by photographers Bayliss and Merlin as a camera obscura to take panoramas of Sydney. The tower was eventually removed by the school. Ref: SLNSW.
