Artist's Description

BEST VIEWED LARGE

A Big THANK YOU to those that take the time and effort to peruse my images. Also thanks for the extra time you have taken for making comments. All comments are appreciated and read, that includes constructive criticism.

Another image of Cammeray Bridge. It is also known as ‘The Suspension Bridge’. Construction started in 1889/90 and was originally built as a suspension bridge. At this time it was the largest of it’s type in australia and the forth largest in the world. It was opened in 1892 as a foot bridge only, complete with a threepence toll charge for an adult (return) and one penny for children.

Ownership changed hands a few times, from the original construction company to a Tramway company and finally to government property in 1935/46. When the Depertment of Main Roads took control it was noted that the bridge has some serious faults in the steel work and cables. The bridge was closed and replaced with a reinforced concrete arch. Even with the bridge construction changed from the original it is still known among some locals as the “Suspension Bridge”.

For me I have travelled over this bridge countless times and each time I always admire the ornate sandstone pillars/gates at each end, and even more so at night. So knock this one up as a “about bloody time” image, or should I say tick that one off. But there is a sneaking suspicion that I will be back to here for more…….
