Port of Teepookana: 1898

Port of Teepookana: 1898

Frederick O. Henry, the short and bearded Scotsman standing fourth from left, made a fortune in the early mining days of the Tasmanian West Coast. My children are his great-great-grandchildren. Behind is the steam from a boat that linked the river port of Teepookana to the sea port of Strahan. Strahan flourishes today as a tourist destination. Teepookana is overgrown by the forest. This professional photograph by J. Mills of Zeehan comes from the F. O. Henry family archive. View full size.
