This photo was taken in the 'Gas Chamber' on the North
Head Quarantine Station Ghost Tour near Sydney,
using Kodak Gold 400 speed film in a Minolta AF Big Finder
with a 34mm lens. The picture is of a small room where new
arrivals were herded and gassed with a chemical
concoction in an attempt to kill any desease on their
person. This photo may be due to the very horrific and
stressful nature of this room, where people were crowded
in and left for 20 minutes while gas was sprayed in
through small portals. For those passengers who had some
respiratory illness such as asthma, this would have been
a horrible experience.
