Bridge Photo Contest Contest Entry 
The sandstone arches of Richmond Bridge have spanned Tasmania?s Coal River since 1825. Built by convict labour, it is Australia?s oldest surviving large stone arch bridge. Rapid population growth and Tasmania?s emerging agricultural industry soon necessitated the need for a connecting bridge over the Coal River. Construction began in 1823, with convicts building the bridge by hand from local sandstone.
