One thought on “Waikawa Beach Footbridge 1931-1990”

  1. Long i remember this old bridge; jumping in the river from it (there was always a hole around it’s western pier). And oh the sping in the bridge!
    The spring tides that rendered the bridge uncrossable in dry feet (you could kayak around it!)
    Actually, this photo is a bit misleading – there was an extra plank length in place of the steps shown; ay them woz the days!
    This bridge is immortalised in a stained glass window in my place.
