1920 – 1930: Spencer St Bridge

The photograph above was taken from the Clarendon Street side of the river. The railway line between Flinders Street Station and Spencer Street Station can be seen arching across the top of the picture. 

The building of this bridge at the end of the decade impacted on Port Melbourne, giving businesses quick access between the piers and the city and therefore preparing for the industrial development of Fisherman’s Bend over the next 20 years.
