Summary

"This image was made in the Empire Hotel, where the town's few employed and many unemployed gather socially. Queenstown's copper mine produced vast wealth, very little of which stayed in the town. It also produced nearly one million tons of poisonous waste, which did stay, in nearby Macquarie Harbour, reputedly the worst polluted body of water in the western world."--Description supplied by photographer.
