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.
