Once Were Bridges




It sits forlornly in a Yamba park going from no-where to no-where. What was once a good idea now seems an embarrassment for a once noble and useful structure. It's riddled with termites and now sheathed in garish orange construction netting; rank weeds grow through its boards.
What will become of the old Palmer's Island Bridge (1925-1986)? Moved into Yamba in 1988 and in a comatose state since the early years of the new century!

  2. Hm, that does seem strange and sad. Reminds me of my breakable, old teacups from my great grandmother - my daughter reminds me to use them every so often.

  3. What a sad ignoble end.
    It really looks like it is in the middle of nowhere.

  4. Interesting. How unusual that it would just be sitting in a park like that.
