Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia

This was sent to me inside a book, so no postmark. The date must be sometime in 2005.

The Giant Span of Sydney Harbour Bridge. The signature is that of David Messent.

The bridge, along with the nearby Sydney Opera House, has become an icon for Sydney and Australia. It opened in 1932 and is the widest long-span bridge in the world. It carries six lanes of traffic on its main roadway, two lanes which used to be tramway, a footpath, two railway lines and a cycle path. The bridge can rise or fall up to 18 cm (7 in) depending on the temperature.

  1. Hi Sheila

    thanks for dropping by!
    that RR from where i got the Kazakhstan card is from Posctrossing indeed....but from the forum, not the main site...its a great place to get many nice cards, but more important to meet so many nice and kind people....highly recommended :)

  2. This is a beautiful landmark for Sydney. Visited it many years ago but I never climbed up the bridge.

  3. Suosdei, Sheila.
    Thanks very much for linking me here. I have forgotten if I left a message here saying that I had your blog linked to mine... but then, thanks again.
    Sydney is one of the cities I'd love to visit. Someday :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
