Long Description:
NSW State Survey Permanent Marker 53523, found at the corner of Cameron Street and Mort Street near the historic Dry Dock Hotel. The Dry Dock pub is the oldest licensed hotel in Balmain and one of a number of establishments which formed an integral part of the shipbuilding and industrial heritage of the local area.

During the early 1900's the nearby Mort's Dock, still visible in the nearby Mort Bay Park, was a generator of much housing and employment in the local area. It was from this enterprise that the Dry Dock pub owes much of its early history through the provision of both refreshment and accommodation for dock workers. The main gate for the dock was located only a short distance away at the opposite side of Cameron Street.
