Summary

"The RTA Environment Branch established an Oral History Program in 1997, to investigate various topics of historical interest. The first topic chosen was the Sydney Harbour Bridge maintenance cranes, prior to their imminent removal ... The major output of this study was some 12 hours of taped interviews with some of the many people who had worked with the maintenance cranes - riggers, crane drivers, crane chasers, bridge engineers and works supervisors."--P. [4] of booklet.
