Historical information

The building is clearly what is now known as the Mission to Seafarers, however there seems to be a sign on the building describing it as the Mission to Seamen. Depicts actual road outside the Mission, Flinders st which seems to still be undeveloped with wooden? drainage covers still in place suggesting a period for the photograph circa late 1930s to the immediate post WW2 era.


The image is part of the century long record of the central location of the Mission at 717 Flinders St.
