Description on page: This view was taken by Harold Cockshott on a half plate camera. It is an excellent view of Palm Beach and Barrenjoey Lighthouse… The actual picture was taken from Miss McCarthy’s house. The road winding around the hill is called Sunrise road. The first two buildings, are, I think, boarding houses. The other three houses belong as follows: - the one at the top on the left belongs to Alice Bowman, the one just below that to Miss Garran, and the one on the right to Dr Brown Craig.
