Digital Photograph - Crowd Walking Along Westgate Bridge to City, Melbourne, 1979 Image Reg. No: MM 110371

Description Of Content:
Crowd of people walking along Westgate Bridge to the city, with view of Melbourne skyline in background.

On this particular day in 1979 Margaret Grey, on the right, and her friend Norma, on the left, accompanied by family members, walked the length of the Westgate Bridge and back. On the day one lane was closed off for the purpose of the walk, which took place not that long after the bridge opened. It was quite a windy day, making the long walk interesting.
