And the answer is…

It’s 1947 and skipper Doug Brockhoff is loading his yacht onto a trailer in preparation for a day’s sailing.

The photo was taken near his family’s Sydney Flour Mill on the Broadway/Glebe Point Road intersection.

See the story of the Brockhoff bakers.

John Lagerlow, Karin Kolbe, Janice Challinor and others identified the location.
