Further information

"This is the Taronga Park of the 1950s. The elephant rides, the kids’ train around the merry-go-round feature and the old Aquarium, a masterpiece in concrete. The ferry is the Lady Ferguson. Some license is evident with the Opera House and Centrepoint Tower being present. The park is shown in its unique setting on the harbour. The WWI digger and the pram make an appearance."
