Australian History

Friday, February 14, 1936. :   The Walter Taylor Bridge, which crosses the Brisbane River, is opened.

     The Walter Taylor Bridge is a suspension bridge crossing the Brisbane River between the suburbs of Indooroopilly and Chelmer. Several signifying points distinguish the bridge. Its support cables were actually surplus support cables used to hold up the incomplete halves of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during its construction. It is also unique among Brisbane bridges in that the two towers of the bridge house residential accommodation, and are still occupied. It operated as a toll bridge up until the 1960s. The Walter Taylor Bridge was opened on 14 February 1936 by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Leslie Orme Wilson, and named after the local contractor who built it.

Thought For Today
Do not lie to one another, for you have taken off the old self with its habits.
Colossians 3:9 (c) GNB
Have you decided to make a change for the better? Then discard your old habits as if they were diseased and dirty clothes. Leave the old ways behind!
