Town Bridge 1934

A nice aerial shot of the newly opened Town Bridge in 1934 ….. note the more natural lines of the river bank downstream and the, as yet, undeveloped embankment area.

Robin Clark has asked, “Are you sure that is the “newly opened” town bridge – looks like the old bridge to me, although they might just be starting to build the new town bridge.”

Robin is correct, it is definitely the old bridge as it is positioned further upstream than the new bridge thus the old customs house wharf is still visible.
