Officially opened on 19 March 1932, the Sydney Harbour Bridge was a massive engineering undertaking that transformed the city.

For six years the two half-arches gradually drew closer together. A dream was realised when the heaviest and biggest bridge arch in the world was finally completed.

This short film documents the construction of one of the world's great landmarks in its various stages, and provides a fascinating glimpse of life around Sydney Harbour and Circular Quay in the 1920s and '30s.

Sydney's Harbour Bridge was made by the Cinema Branch and produced by the Department of Commerce.
