STILL in Rio
The other day I was on a Ferry out on the harbour on my way to Sydney Bienniale at Cockatoo Island. I saw that another ferry was the Borrowdale - the name of one of the first fleet ships. Further examination showed that Sydney Ferries has a whole class of Ferries called the 'First Fleet Class'. In all there are 9, built between 1984 and 1986.
No mention is made of there ever having been 2 more ferries. What happened to the other 2, and which are left out?
The 2 that aren't represented are the Lady Penrhyn and the Prince of Wales. Both of these were female transportation ships. Were they deemed not worthy? Because they carried women?
Shame on you Sydney Ferries.
