John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1.

Reinforced Concrete T-girder Bridges.
Flemington Road Bridge, Flemington (Melbourne) 1913.

View in the general direction of the main girders, taken from the bed of the channelised creek. The columns supporting the bridge appear extremely slender and widely spaced. The outer girder supporting the edge of the footpath also looks insignificant. The columns have triangular corbels.
