Sunday Selections – Richmond

Here are some photos that I’ve taken of the Richmond Bridge from various visits to Richmond. These are for frogpondsrock‘s Sunday Selections – feel free to wander over and check out what other people are posting πŸ™‚

To quote directly from the Richmond website:

Originally named Bigge’s Bridge, Richmond Bridge is Australia’s oldest bridge still in use. It was built by convicts from sandstone quarried at Butchers Hill and hauled by hand carts to the bridge site. The cutwaters were added in 1884. The bridge is said to be haunted by several ghosts, including Grover, a cruel flagellator.

I have to say this is the first time I’ve ever heard of Grover the Flagellator. Until today, the only Grover I knew was from Sesame Street ….

Anyway, on with the photos. It’s very hard to get shots of the bridge without people as it’s such a popular attraction. Some you can edit out really easily and others you can’t.
