The Most Beautiful Harbour in the World
My darling mother called it " My uncle's bridge" because he was a foreman in one of the workshops at Dorman Long steel producers in Middlesbrough that won the contract to build Sydney Harbour Bridge in the 1920s. She recalled being taken to the works as a child to see the Bridge opened ( presumably on film) in 1932. Then in an undreamt of turn of events, she actually got to see the bridge in situ in the 1960s as when she arrived in Sydney as the wife of an RAF officer stationed with the Royal Australian Airforce.
Sunday 18th March 2012 was the 80th anniversary of the Harbour Bridge opening. My beloved 92 year old mother died the very next day.
