#OnThisDay 16 March 1932, Isabella Watts & Alice Walker from Belmore North Public School were just two of 50,000 school children who marched across the Sydney Harbour Bridge on just days before it opened for traffic.Tony Browne explains... "The 89 year old lady next door said she was at the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and someone from the press took this photograph and it was published in the paper.....
