Leslie Francis Farey films his first walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932 and the panoramic view he enjoyed of Sydney Harbour. Farey has captured other curious pedestrians inspecting the newly-built bridge, the tramlines and Sydney Harbour from Kirribilli to Circular Quay.
From this film we gain a sense of what Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge were like when the bridge was first built. A tram drives towards the camera and people take in the harbour view.
Leslie Farey pans from Kirribilli to Circular Quay and then up the harbour past Fort Denison as he walks from the north side to the south. All hand-held, this gives a personal account of his experience.
The edits in the clip were probably in-camera edits, resulting from simply turning off the camera and recommencing filming.
