  • Photograph by B Sheppard – Spiky Bridge [Built by Convicts], Near Swansea, East Coast Road Tasmania

    Photograph by B Sheppard – Spiky Bridge [Built by Convicts], Near Swansea, East Coast Road Tasmania

    An original photograph by B (Benjamin) Sheppard (1902-1987). Size 21 x 16cm. Overall in good condition. Sheppard was most active in the 1950’s and the photograph likely cones from that period. The rear of the photograph carries B Sheppard’s stamp, that of the Agent General for Tasmania and a manuscript note identifying the location … a rather obvious one to those that love and live in the Apple Isle.

    You can still see the solid Spiky Bridge built by Convict labour in 1843. The road has been moved onto a more modern and rather boring structure. The spikiness is thought to be an invention to stop cattle falling into the water … maybe. If you go there the remain of the Governor’s cottage can be seen on the hill nearby.

    A Tasmanian landmark … Spiky Bridge a strange structure built by convicts

  • Original Photograph – Jackie Ronne and Jennie Darlington – First Women on the Antarctic

    Original Photograph – Jackie Ronne and Jennie Darlington – First Women on the Antarctic

    An original photograph of Jackie Ronne and Jennie Darlington on their way to the Antarctic (The Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition 1946-48). The first women to winter over on the Antarctic and in Jennie Darlington’s case the first woman to get pregnant on the cold Continent.

    Bright clean photograph with negligible impact from handling a good size 22cm by 18cm

    Jackie real name Edith Ronne was the wife of one of the great mid-century expedition leaders Finn Ronne (his father was with Amundsen). The story goes that the decision for Jackie to go and stay on the Antarctic was made on the preliminary voyage going south and perhaps even more unusual that the glamorous Jennie Darlington, wife of expedition pilot Harry Darlington, was also persuaded on that outbound voyage and that the rational was to avoid any criticism of Finn taking wife Jackie at the last minute mmhhh. Seemingly, the girls did not get on … and spent months on end not talking to each other.

    Regardless of all of that much was accomplished on this the last privately funded Antarctic expedition .. new ground was covered and mapped and pieces of it named after Jackie who proved invaluable in keeping accurate records of the achievements.
