Postcards of Sydney

Posted: August 14, 2010 in Photos

Today I was sorting through some family photos and came across the following two postcards that I must have bought at some time and thought I would share:

The first one is of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, in April 1930.  On the Back of the post card it says:

“This was the great era of the Sydney Harbour Ferries. The multidude of steam ferries at berth and crisscrossing the harbour linked the north shore with the city. The Harbour Bridge seen five months from the closing of it’s arch was still two years from completion’.

The second one is of the Pyrmont Bridge Sydney, dated 1902. On the back of the post card, is reads:

“Looking east across Darling Harbour to the city. Clearly the traffic jam is not a modern phenonemon!”.
