Description:

Francis Greenway suggested to Governor Macquarie that the north shore should be linked to Sydney by a bridge, an idea which had been discussed since 1815. In 1880 the Government negotiated with J.E.Garbett, to build a high-level bridge designed by J.S.Parrott which was to cost �450,000. The government under Sir Henry Parks went so far as to accept �5000 as security from Mr Garbett, however by 1883 this design was also rejected. From: The Illustrated Sydney News.
