Prominent Feature

St Kilda Beach has an interesting landmark at its northern end called Lawyers Head. It is this headland that separates St Kilda from Tomahawk beach.

I'm not sure if this is named after Alfred Hanlon, a famous lawyer from Dunedin's history. The name does seem apt enough given the stern demeanour, but why a lawyer?

Dunedin has always been a university city so why not a professor, doctor , clergyman or even a judge. Something to ponder I guess.
