WOW! That is a great video. It is really neat that it has sound with all the details about the construction. Is the bridge still there?

Yes, 'The Coat Hanger' is a well used nick name for it, painting is a full time job, start at one end and by the time they get to the other, it starts all over again, Paul Hogan, the movies of Crocodile Dundee you might be familiar with was a painter on the bridge.

I was on that bridge in 1970 on a port call to Sydney. That thing is really big! We tied up not to far from the Opera House. Sydney is the cleanest big city I've ever seen, great people to. PK

Sydney is home to the oldest chapter of the Model 'T' Ford Club of America in Australia. When I am 1000 odd miles away from home I love catching up with Ray Green, Jim & Anne McKern, Peter Kable, Gil Whitehouse, Richard Day but too mention just a few of the members keeping model 'T's alive over there. Here is their website: www.modeltfordclubnsw.org.au
