Fawcett's Bridge Lismore

Fawcett's Bridge opened in 1884 and linked Lismore with North Lismore over the Wilsons River. For many years the busy Lismore wharves were located to the south of the bridge.

This shot from the Lismore City Web Site shows the 'infamous' punt from Lismore to Nth Lismore. It was government run but apparently an irregular service.

  2. I haven't seen this style of bridge before Mark, unusual with the circle cut outs Well shown. Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

  3. Yes, I like the drama those ovals introduce to the image, Mark. Just right for conversion to B&W.

    I am struggling to understand how an irregular government ferry service comes as a surprise to you.

  5. Mark, email the Royal to bluemountainsjournal at gmail.com (the email link on my profile) and I will post it for you. That bridge is looking as good as if is was new.
