The Pier One Feature

I am grateful to The Pier One (@thepierone on Instagram) who recently featured my photo of three people stood at the doorway of Tempe House in Wolli Creek.

Tempe House, designed by John Verge (1772-1861) and built by Alexander Brodie Spark (1792-1856) in 1836, is considered one of the finest of Sydney’s heritage houses and of particular historical significance due mainly to the people who occupied it, including not only Brodie Spark, but also Caroline Chisholm and the Sister’s of The Good Samaritan.  It sits on the banks of the Cooks River, which is the view being looked at by the people in the photo.
