10.3: St. Theresa Point, Northern Section
This very large-scale image was obtained after the photo in figure 10.2. Given the large scale of the photo much detail can be identified. For example individual dwellings 1 can be identified on what was an uninhabited peninsula in figure 10.2 Also the main north/south road 2 with side roads leading from it 3 can be identified; in 1992 there were approximately 6.7 km of internal roads on the point.[i] The scale is large enough that several trucks 4 can be seen on the road. Jetties are located around the coast 5; that in the west has at least four boats moored at it 6.
The large building under construction in figure 10.2 is now complete 7; the nearby hockey rink 8 suggests that it might be a school. North of this are several large buildings, one with a pointed roof 9 that may be the band office. In the centre of the photo a large building has been constructed 10 on what was wooded land in figure 10.2
Scattered throughout the photo near large buildings are cylindrical structures, some vertical 11 and some horizontal 12, with a large cluster in the southeast 13. These are probably diesel storage tanks; the large cluster has near it several large poles 14 indicated by their shadow.
The fact that shadows fall just north of west indicates that this is an early morning photo.
