Artist's Description

Joe Mortelliti Gallery – Ruins of a railway bridge, Old Ghan Railway, South Australia. The Ghan railway was progressively built in response to a number of needs. These came from mining companies, graziers, wheat growers and later to ease unemployment.

The railway was abandoned in 1981 and by 1987 virtually all useful materials had been salvaged. Within six years the line looked like it had been abandoned for a hundred years.

One of the old Ghan Railway’s most impressive bridges, Algebuckina Bridge, nearly 600 metres long, still spans the river. Photographed August 2005.
