Postcard, Bridges over the Mokoreta RiverAbout this object
This is a photographic postcard depicting the railway (foreground) and the road (background) bridges over the Mokoreta (Wyndham) River. The railway bridge over the Mokoreta, unlike the one over the Mataura River, had concrete pillars. This can be seen in the image.
Interestingly, after the Glenham railway branch line closed in the 1930s, the railway bridge became the new road bridge for a time.
Note the bicycle leaning against a fence. Presumably the owner has gone fishing down at the river.
