On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.
Novelist Peter Carey draws the reader into a wild and wonderful journey of discovery and re-discovery of Sydney.

Unless that is I intend to leave the corsets behind. I wouldn't want to deny the men there the view of my unencumbered body; though Gods know the only curves I carry come out with the boning.Hell, had I know that Illinois was a BDSM community at the beginning of my trip, I'd have begun and probably ended there. There's nothing as sweet as calling a man "Master". I wonder if they hand out collars at the airport. Perhaps I'll just pack my own.-----
