So I don't derail the pictures of bridges thread any more, I'll just post links to a couple of stories about the bombing raids. See http://www.naa.gov.au …on/fact-sheets/fs195.aspx (external link) and http://education.abc.n​et.au …912/the-bombing-of-darwin (external link).

Hi Pippan. I clicked your link. WOW! What devastation. And what a restoration project to bring it to what it is now. I liked the way the images let you pull the curtain to reveal the regenerated view. You can see some characteristics have been retained if you look carefully. Very good.
Also, I didn't realise you guys 'down under' were getting bombed in WWII! Tell me more!

Ray

I also did not realize Australia had been bombed at all by the Japanese. Wow

Thank you for the 2 links. The Japanese hit Darwin extremely hard, and for nearly 2 years.

I did not know this either. Amazing how much of history is left out of what is taught to us in school.

What are the buildings on the bridge with windows? Residences?

Once upon a time they were residences and butcher shops -nowadays they are tourist souvenir shops, jewelers.


A photo I took HERE published in National GeographicTime on your hands? Then HERE'S plenty more photos to nibble on (external link):

Thank you, Richard. Got up early and stayed up late, then wandered the streets. The photos almost take themselves. ;-)a

Nice set of pics. (Been there, done that, didn’t get the T shirt and can’t boast about the pics).

Good morning Pippan.
Thanks for the links. I knew that the ANZACS were heavily involved in both WWI and WWII, particularly at Gallipoli and in Greece but only do I vaguely recall North Australia being caught up in the bombing raids. However, I vividly remember the Yanks being here during WWII. Each GI seemed to his own personal jeep to impress the girls and supply of chewing gum for us kids. I have a couple of funny stories but I must not derail the thread. We also took heavy bombing raids.

Hello Mike
Aren’t we a little bit far from home?
Nice pic. What about a little Perspective tweak in PS?

Pedestrian bridge at Somesville on Mount Desert Island.

Couldn’t decide which I liked more between the two photos.
