Completed in 1928, this old bridge is based on the American Howe Truss design. The Bridge is 21.3m (70 feet) long, and it spans Mill Creek just before it flows into the Hawkesbury River near Spencer. There is barely any trace of the old three story mill upstream, apart from the basic foundations. A new concrete bridge has been built alongside the original, which is now permanently closed to vehicular traffic.
Captured on a less than perfect day, at 1/60th f16.0 and ISO-320.
