The foundation stone for the Richmond Bridge, Richmond Tasmania was laid on 11 December 1823 and construction continued using convict labour until completion in 1825. The bridge was originally named Bigge’s Bridge after Royal Commissioner, John Thomas Bigge, who recognised the need for the bridge in 1820.
In 2005, the bridge was recognised as an outstanding historic place and added to the Australian National Heritage List.

    I’ve seen no bridge like that. I love the almost-painterly feel to this, and the duck-feeding is the finishing touch (amazing timing!) :)

  • Thanks heaps & heaps for your thoughtful & encouraging comment :-)
