About This Item

Melbourne, 1893. Unusual albumen photograph tipped onto a Christmas/New Year card The writing to the reverse is in ink and reads: La Trobe swing bridge 3 miles from Sale, Vic, junction of Glengarry and Thomson rivers. Cost £11,000. For dear Alfie, 1 January 1894 signed in initials F.W.P.P. The bridge still stands today having been refurbished in 1972 but the original writer mistakenly puts the Glengarry River when it is the La Trobe River. At the time of construction there was much debate about the delays and monies that were spent. The image measures 10x7.5 cm and the card 16.5x10.5.
