Photographer's Note

The Richmond Bridge is a heritage listed arch bridge located on the B31 in Richmond, 25 kilometres (15.5 mi) north of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. It is the oldest bridge still in use in Australia,it was built over Tasmania's Coal River from 1823 to 1825 and was used for the movement of military police and convicts between Hobart and Port Arthur.

It is said to have been the site where a desperate convict committed suicide and where, in another story, a cruel overseer was set upon by the convict workers and thrown off the bridge.
