The place where the re-furbished crane will be erected is being prepared. Of course, that is not the original location which is illustrated in the photograph below

The cranes are represented in the Jan Senbergs paintings currently on exhibition in the gallery space at the Port Melbourne Town Hall. Sendbergs had a studio in Bay St in the 1980s where he painted this series - known as the Port Liardet Limner. He was intrigued by Liardet's story and his paintings. Like Liardet, and so many others, he began his Australian journey here.
