Of the three articles, I think the most interesting was about De Groot,the man who opened the Harbour Bridge, illegally.
I cant believe he was charged with damaging a ribbon worth 2 pounds. Apparently bits of the ribbon are in the bowels of Mitchell Library.
Here's a lovely photo of our wonderful bridge courtesy of Adrian Ng.
It's so beautiful no wonder De Groot was so eager to open it.
My grandfather used to tell stories about travelling by ferry from Manly and watching the bridge being built above him. It must have been an incredible sight. It still is . A true engineering marvel.
