Woolloomooloo, Sydney: Images from the Fairfax Archive

Woolloomooloo is a harbourside suburb of inner-city Sydney. For many decades it was home to shipping companies, wharves and working-class residents, and was a popular destination for sailors from the nearby Royal Australian Navy base of Garden Island.

The historic Finger Wharf was built between 1911 and 1915 and remains one of the iconic landmarks of the area. It was renovated in the mid 1990s and now supports 300 residential apartment, a boutique hotel and restaurants.
