'Nearly 60,000 school children are being given the privilege of crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge before its opening' in March 1932. Eight-year-old Kenneth Jones stands atop one of the arches (without any apparent safety precautions taken!) and speaks to camera: 'They look like ants down there.' Intertitle reads: 'Rain fails to damp ardor of school children as they stream across bridge on their special day'. From a Melbourne Herald Newsreel. This item is part of the Roger McKenzie collection.
