It’s coming along nicely. No joke when I say this, I’ve been doing this a year. I didn’t do any for ages when I went to uni though so that’s why it isn’t finished yet. (Ignored the creased fabric) (it’s the Sydney harbour bridge at night with lights shining on to the water)
Sydney Harbour Bridge during construction in 1930. The bridge is nicknamed “The Coathanger” because of its arch-based design. It’s also called "the Iron Lung“, as it kept many Depression-era workers employed. The construction of the now Sydney Harbour Bridge began in 1924, and took 1400 men eight years to build at the cost of AU£6.25 million, which was not paid off in full until 1988.
