    My Late Father Leslie Speechley did a Death Defying Slide from Sydney Harbour Bridge into Luna Park, around 1931 or 1932. I have information on this side in an old peice of newspaper.

    The tall gentleman on the left is my great, great Uncle Lawrence Ennis. My mother was raised by her grandmother, who was the sister of Lawrence.

    Born in 1923 and living in Sydney, I had the opportunity thru the years up to 1932 to see the gradual building of this great structure, mostly from the many ferry trips to Manly. On its opening day my Dad and I walked over the Bridge with thousands of other folk. I remember too the commotion of the De Groot incident at the opening ceremony.

    some people are so picky! as the person b4 said, it's probably old and colour wasn't available back then so just appreciate that we have old pictures like this! Who cares if it's a bit far away!!!

    I have been on this bridge this year, and it looks bigger than it does in pictures, when I saw it in for real I was blown away.

    During the 1950s, Ansett Airlines operated Short Sunderland flying boats between Sydney and Lord Howe Island. In commercial service, they were known as Sandringhams. These flying boats were replaced by Fokker F27 Friendships.

    The car ferry was one of several vessels of this type used for cross-harbour movements prior to completion of the Bridge.

    A view from Kirribilli circa 1950s (northern shore) showing Bradfield Park and the northern pylons. The north-eastern pylon (closest to camera) now contains the exhaust vent for the Sydney Harbour Road Tunnel.

    Load testing of the Bridge using more than 8,000 tons of "dead" steam locomotives that had been out of service as a result of the Great Depression (mainly of the Z24, Z25, D50 and D53 classes. Tracks on the left were used by trams from 1932 to 1958.

    This photo shows the creeper crane on its ramp on one of the abutments, ready to lay the first panel of the arch chord. The ramps on the Sydney Harbour Bridge were removed when the Bridge was completed, but both Hell Gate Bridge in New York City and the Veterans Memorial Bridge in Cleveland, Ohio retained their ramps. The Cleveland bridge is a much shorter double deck version of the Sydney and New Yok bridges.

    This photo shows the multi-function creeper cranes erecting the first panels of each half-arch. Picture taken from the northern side of the harbour.

    This photo clearly shows why, at almost 50 metres wide, it was - and, I believe, still is - the widest long-span bridge in the world.

    I remember most phases of the Bridge construction and walked across it when it was opened in 1932. Very recently I visited Dawes Point and was overwhelmed by memories of the immensity of the work that was performed in the Depression years in achieving its construction. People use the bridge every day but very few would give even a passing thought to the monumental effort that was required to effect a vehicular passage between Dawes and Millers points. The Sydney Harbour Bridge given the era in which it was built ranks with any other engineering project ever carried out in Australia, and this includes the Snowy Mountain Hydro-Electric project.
