The Argyle Cut

This passage was hand cut by convict labour, a shortcut between The Rocks east and west side. TThe Cut was begun with convict labour in 1843 to provide direct easy access between Millers Point and The Rocks but was not completed until 1859, with the use of explosives and council labour.
