Greenwich, Sydney, NSW, Australia
The Sydney suburb of Greenwich, in the city's 'Lower North Shore' area. Originally home to the Cammeraygal clan of the Guringai people, the current name is from the English town (as are nearby Putney, Woolwich and Henley - the entire area was often referred to as the 'Thames of the Antipodes').
European land grants began in 1794, with convict Samuel Lightfoot being one of the first.
This particular structure is Shell's Gore Bay Terminal, viewed from Manns Point Park (named for Civil Engineer Gother Kerr Mann, best known for his work on nearby Cockatoo Island - particularly the superb Fitzroy Graving Dock). Constructed around 1901.
The facility is used to import gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and marine fuel oil; all of which are then piped to the Clyde Terminal site.
