Circular Quay of Sidney

After that I went to Sydney and talked profitlessly with seamen and members of the vice-admiralty court. I saw the Alert, now sold and in commercial use, at Circular Quay in Sydney Cove, but gained nothing from its non-committal bulk.
-Call of Cthulhu, HPL.

Above, this image is of the Circular Quay but of unknown date.

Above, this image is Circular Quay from the Harbour Bridge,Sydney, Australia. Circa 1934, slightly later than the date of the Call of Cthulhu.

Above is a color image said to be circa 1920's.

This image has an interesting provenance. The seller states: From my Granny's Basement for your enjoyment and pleasure we offer you this very rare estate find, a 1925 postcard issued by the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia to the Officers and Men of the American Fleet, July-August 1925. // This was an item that my Grandma's Uncle brought back to the USA after being on Duty in the Pacific Fleet. // This postcard features a picture of Circular Quay, Sidney, New South Wales, Australia.
