Glebe Island Bridge, 1873



Product Description

Completed in December 1861, the Glebe Island Bridge connected the city to the Edmund Blacket designed stone buildings of Glebe Island Abattoirs. Not surprisingly, Glebe and Balmain residents complained constantly of the smell and the abattoir featured prominently in the 1882 Royal Commission into noxious and offensive trades. The government banned the boiling down of offal in 1883 and eventually the abattoirs were moved to Homebush.

Our Giclee prints are made to order from high resolution digital scans on archival cotton rag papers using pigment inks. They are printed with a white border allowing you to mount and frame as desired. A Library disclaimer is also printed along the bottom edge of the print.
