Albany Whaling Station

Australia's last functioning whaling station ceased operations in 1978 (about the time I was active demonstrating against whaling).
The Cheynes business was turned into a historic centre of information on how it all worked. Quite a disturbing place in many ways but fantastic that it wasn't lost, left to rust or turned into luxury apartments.

Like these in an uncomfortable sort of way. Still, after all your demos, that's a perfect Greenpeace shot in #5. :)

Great shots of the whaling station. I covered the protests for the local newspaper, the albany advertiser, in 1977, and the closure in 1978. Written a book, The Last Whale, looking inside the heads of the activists and the whalers. it's out in October.
