“An Old Work Horse” – SS South Styene

This ended up being a nice photo taken of the Pyrmont Bridge and the SS South Steyne ferry with the west side of the city of Sydney in the background. The South Steyne is now a floating restaurant in Darling Harbour. I actually think it is a little ironic having the old boat and the old bridge next to each other with both having been built in the early 1900’s.  The South Steyne has been an icon of Sydney since 1938. As the famous Manly ferry, it crossed between Circular Quay and Manly over 100,000 times over its 36 years, carrying well in excess of 92 million passengers.

“Bridge Over Emerald Waters” – Darling Harbour, Sydney

Darling Harbour in Sydney is such a great place for photos. This is a photo I managed to take of Pyrmont Bridge that connects one side of Darling Harbour to the other. It has some beautiful old timber and stone supporting structures. It was opened in 1902 and is capable of being drawn up to allow tall boats to pass through, in fact, it was one of the world’s first electric swing-span bridges and opens for vessels up to 14m (45ft) tall.
