This project, through the Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship, features an essay and blog on each of the three major Brisbane bridges of the 30s, with photos and anecdotes of life in Brisbane then and the role of MR in shaping a more modern view of Queensland. This edition highlights photos of the building of the Story Bridge, the workforce and the shape of Brisbane around the River in the 1930s. Other original photos are in the precious Story Bridge Albums being restored by the John Oxley Library and will become available in the near future.
Julie Hornibrook is the recipient of the 2015 Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship. As an accompaniment to this showcase of historic photos of The Story Bridge, Julie has written an in-depth essay about the history of the Story Bridge.
