Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery
Richmond is an ancient and prosperous trading city on the east coast of the USA, but the Richmond River is a river in Australia.
Although it now seems to have outlived its usefulness due to the development of roads and railways, the work is a recreation of a landing stage from the early 20th century, when the River Richmond was prosperous.
The tall building is a grain warehouse. It is a facility where grain can be sucked out of ships by steam power.
Running around with the men carrying the goods in the warehouse area is a small steam locomotive made by Bagnall, England.
On the other side of the warehouse, at the end of the draw line, is the Leatherneck II, the first powered submarine ever built, also in England, in 1879.
If you look at the top of the submarine, you will see a railing with delicate cast iron decoration.
This is the first time that a submarine has been built with such a delicate decoration.
True or false, the bustling, somewhat dodgy atmosphere of the harbour is to die for!
The river itself was not created as a work of art, but only the landing place was used to show the river's presence.
The transport fittings are removable, so you can place the landing platform on a layout that resembles the surface of the water and you have a harbour in no time at all.
