The William Jolly Bridge is a 1640 ft long structure with three 236 ft long arch spans over the Brisbane River. It's a steel bridge encased in concrete that was built in 1932. This bridge is similar to Los Angeles River Bridges like the Sixth Street Bridge built in the same year. Bridges during that period have a similar Modern style that remind me of the Wizard of Oz. It was originally called the Grey Street Bridge until the 1950s when it was renamed after Brisbane's first mayor. We'll take a closer look at it tomorrow.
