Colmslie area in 2003. The A. Raptis Fish Wharf and Fish Market is located
at the bottom centre of the photograph with the Mobil Wharf located to
the right of it in front of the WW2 Igloo type building. (UBD Map 161 Ref. F2)


Colmslie Beach and Colmslie Reserve is located just to the right of the above photograph. A little further to the right past Colmslie Beach is a Slipway. Just past this slipway there is the Cairncross Wharf and the Cairncross Graving Dock.
