75th Bday for Sydney Harbour Bridge!!!

It's the 75th Bday for Sydney Harbour Bridge!! And I'm proud to be part of the celebration! yeah!! It's really a magnificent bridge.. the grandeur of bridge.. phew! It's so big and enduring.. enduring 75 years of rain and shine, and overlooking 75 years of Sydney history.. makes you wonder how the hell did those people back in the 1920s-30s built it!

Well, the bridge was completed in 1932, after ~8 years of building, and cost the lives of 16 people. It also costed a bomb too! Back then, NSW has to borrow so much money for the building of the bridge, that it takes them 54 years to repay their debt! Anyway, it was designed by Dr. JJC Bradfield (though some controversial here) and it link the northen and the 'southern' part of Sydney together. IT's good, in that it makes travelling btw these two places so much easier!

Next stop: Harbour Bridge Climb!! Anyone interested as well???
