When was the Sydney Harbour Bridge Built – Years of Blood Sweat and Tears

Building the Sydney Harbour Bridge wasn’t easy. Sixteen men died whilst building the bridge, as accidents occurred often, due to the dangers of building the bridge.

 

An example would be the the job of the rivet cooker. This person had to throw red hot rivets to the rivet catchers, who caught these rivets in buckets and then hammered them into the bridge. Even though the work was dangerous, the harbour bridge workers received quite good wages and conditions for the time and although the unions were always a part of it there was very little industrial action in the eight years it took to complete.
