Cockatoo Island 1 – Cranes

Littering the Cockatoo Island landscape, these sentinels are an imposing sight on the skyline. Many of the cranes have fallen into incredible states of disrepair, with some of the booms having become completely detached from the body of the crane.
These cranes are the subject of my first post on Cockatoo Island, one is even a familiar reminder of home.  Stothert and Pitt cranes are familiar to us from our explorations in Wellington, and are also a common sight on the Island.
