[The largest composite-hull sailing vessel ever built, Tingira was operated by the Royal Australian Navy between 1911 and 1927. Originally named Sobraon, she was built in Scotland in 1866.]

Built from 1924 to 1926, the Rose Bay Promenade was “designed as an integrated scheme that allowed both pedestrians and motorists a unique opportunity to view the waters of Rose Bay and the harbour beyond...The concrete balustrade were low to allow motorists a view over it as they travelled along New South Head Road.” Ref: Wiki, NSW Office of Environment & Heritage.
