With all this amazing cloud around I thought I would check out the beach dedicated to CY Oconnor. For those of you who don’t know WA history, CY Oconnor was one of the best engineers Australia has ever seen and 2 of his more note worthy projects were the pipeline to the Gold Fields in Kalgoorly from Perth and the Harbour in Fremantle itself.
He copped so much flack from the press about his pipeline project that when they flicked the switch and the water did not flow immediately, he thought he had failed the mission and the next day he rode into the water at this beach and shot himself.
The following day the water flowed!!!!
Only now are they dredging the harbour that he designed and it has done us proud till now, so what an amazing man with an amzing foresight. The media has a lot to answer for i reckon!
