People and cars are gathered on the William Jolly Bridge (also known as the Grey Street Bridge) for its opening by Lieut. Governor General Sir John Goodwin, on Wednesday 30 March 1932. Photograph appears to have been taken from the north side of the river, looking towards South Brisbane. 'Amongst the interesting features of the Bridge, the length of which is 1634 feet, are the three main arches over the river, of 238 ft. centres, each rib consisting of structural steel fabricated under a sub-contract let by Messrs. M. R. Hornibrook Ltd. to Messrs. Evans, Deakin and Co., Brisbane. This steelwork was designed to support the concrete during construction without falsework.' (Information taken from: Souvenir : official opening of Grey Street Bridge, 1932).
