The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 26



I think Mr. Swyer was the first to propose a system of Docks at Dunedin. He intended to have three distinct Docks at Jetty, Stuart, and Rattray Streets. The two former were to have a wharf half way down the centre, and, so far as I am able to judge from the plan, all were to be shut in with gates.

I agree in the principle of Docks at Dunedin, but think the better plan would be to have one large square basin with short jetties at the sides. The Harbour is well sheltered, and the rise and fall of the tide is comparatively small, consequently it would not be necessary to have the basin enclosed all round.
