Atop the Parkes aerial cabin
Several months before the opening of the Parkes 210-foot radio telescope, this image of Harry Minnett (left) and Dennis Gill on top of the Parkes telescope aerial cabin was taken by George Day from the crane used to assemble the Dish. The image, from the CSIRO Radio Astronomy Image Archive, appears in Joe Pawsey and the Founding of Australian Radio Astronomy by Goss, Hooker and Ekers.
