Sketches at Point Henry

from w
Here are some biro sketches at Point Henry, the Alcoa plant just out of Geelong. This is where the first European settlers arrived in sailing ships to start a new life in Australia. Of course Australia was already settled by the indigenous people, the Aboriginal tribes, but that was discounted and Australia was called 'an empty land' there for the taking.  So when boat people make their perilous way to Australia, we need to remind ourselves that many of our ancestors came, uninvited, to this land also.
