Biggest paddlewheeler to operate on the harbour and also the most luxurious Manly ferry ever to operate - Brighton was as nearly as big as the current Manly boats.

A very busy Circular Quay in the early 1900s. By the first half of the first decade there were already some 400 ferry movements a day in and out of Quay - this would increase to nearly 600 per day immediately prior to the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
