The Sun's caption states the pic was taken at Woolloomooloo, but I suspect the location might have been Day St, Darling Harbour.

In addition to the above, Ada Evans was the first woman in Australia to graduate in law (from the University of Sydney in 1902). She fought for years to be admitted to practise in NSW and finally gained admission in 1921. She did not subsequently practise at the Bar, but had paved the way for other women (eg.

The notes stating that Sybil Morrison was the first woman lawyer to practise in Australia are incorrect. She was the first woman to actively practise at the NSW Bar from 1924, however she was preceded by Joan Rosanove who signed the Victorian Bar Roll in 1923. Flos Greig was the first woman to practise law (as a solicitor) in Australia, being admitted by the Victorian Supreme Court in 1905.

2016-07-29 16:52 q.m. S.S. Largs Bay attached to a tug boat, New South Wales, ca.1930 (Version)
<a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/223222644/24443336#'>http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/223222644/24443336#</a> - this pic of the Largs Bay appeared in the Sun pictorial on 25th June, 1928. The pic was taken earlier that day when the Largs Bay arrived in Sydney. Formerly an Australian Commonwealth Line vessel, this was evidently the first trip the Largs Bay had made to Sydney since being sold to the Aberdeen & Commonwealth Line.<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/16474931'>http://trove.nla.gov...
