Abstract/Summary On 19 March 1932, after nine years’ planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the new Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It tells the extraordinary story of its design and construction and how it became a much-loved feature of the city, from the time of De Groot cutting the official ribbon when it opened, to spectacular fireworks and bridge-climbers today
