Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Theme Day ~ Looking Out
Coming back from brunch one Sunday afternoon across town, I took the 'tourist' drive through pastoral hills and greenery, the Chandler Highway aka Tourist Drive 2. Traffic was at a standstill - approaching this bridge, I realised why. Half the bridge was blocked due to emergency road work around an electricity pole at the other end. What was a two lane bridge was now a one lane bridge - workman holding a "Stop" sign stood to direct one way of traffic. Looking out the side mirror to see the traffic build-up behind me, I took this photo. The iron bridge crosses the Yarra River in the Kew/Alphington area.
Edit: Many thanks to Andrew of High Riser for pointing out an error. The bridge is called the Chandler Bridge and the building of it was originally completed in 1891. To avoid confusion, I have removed the incorrect data which was in the original post.
