Hello Norman, |
Thank you - the article verifies Marguerite Nichol's story.
Dorman Long and Company of Middlesbrough completed the New Tyne Bridge, in 1928, with one death recorded, and completed the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932, with 16 deaths recorded.
It seems likely that some of the local men that worked on the Newcastle bridge, in 1928, would have later been invited to work on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, in 1932.
