Morning bulletin (Rockhampton, Queensland).
Kemp Beach, Queensland.
User comment: This photograph has not been taken from a vantage point at Emu Park. The photographer is standing on The Bluff (either the Summit or Turtle Lookouts-so named today) at the southern end of Kemp Beach (well north of Emu Park) and is facing north. Shoalwater Bay and Shoalwater Creek (now The Causeway and lakes) are further south, behind the photographer. The beach in the foreground is Kemp Beach and today's Rosslyn Bay (Keppel Bay) Marina is out of the photograph on the isthmus extending seawards in the middle distance. The vast area of salt-pan on the left of the photograph is unchanged today. A Morning Bulletin (Rockhampton) newspaper search on Trove for 25th November, 1939 did not reveal this image. I can vouch for the accuracy of my comments about the photograph as I grew up in Emu Park (17 years) and know the area very well. I return yearly to witness the progress in my old home town and surrounds. (TELL5618, Redirected feedback. G. May, 15 December 2020) (mp 16/12/2020)
