Sydney Harbour Bridge – Happy Birthday Podcast

This year marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. In this episode I reminisce on some 50th anniversary celebrations and discuss Dr Frank Cash, who took thousands of photographs during the Bridge’s construction. I consider the changes to North Sydney resulting from the building of the Bridge and later the Warringah Expressway. North Sydney was the suburb where I lived as a child. Two songs, one a birthday song, are included in this episode. You can see more images here.
