roads etc

Took a walk yesterday to get some pics of a bridge we had driven over. North Bridge is the name far as I know heading north from Sydney. All plaques had been erased so no idea by whom or for what occasion it was built. The bridge spans a chasm or gorge in which is a recreation area, so far down one would need a telephoto lens to get any pics of what's going on down there. On the way back I took the shot of some prime real estate when it struck me that we are using ridiculous amounts of property just to get where we want to go in less time. Are we really in that much of a hurry?

Google is your friend, Brian: The Medieval looking North Bridge was one of Sydney's engineering marvels when it was completed in the 1890s. The suspension bridge is still much admired towering above walkers and joggers in Tunks Park far below.

It's even got its own blog:

Doesn't say anywhere if it memorialized anything or anyone, though...
