Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney, Australia from the State Library of New South Wales
And now for the first of a dozen great vintage shots of the iconic Harbour Bridge. This particular shot is a construction shot from 1930 which also features two airplanes, Charles Ulm’s “Southern Sun” & a Gypsy Moth. (The planes were added to the image after the fact to make it more dramatic.) More photos of the bridge here.
