The Sydney Harbour Bridge

RRP $19.95

On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.

Martello Towers In Cork Harbour

RRP $13.99

This book looks at several archeological structures found in Cork harbour but focussing on the Martello Towers. It also explores why these towers were built and why they were built in Cork. It will also aim to provide a historic background as to why these towers were built and why the design of the Martello towers differs from those built elsewhere. It will also provide an insight into the defenses of Cork harbour and the need for Martello Towers in 19th Century Cork harbour. Though it will provide a historical background its main purpose is an archeological study of these Martello Towers but it also is a good story. A story well worth reading for anyone interested in history, folklore or archeology or indeed in all 3 disciplines. I've done my best to make it interesting, and succeeded in my opinion, and to focus not just on the facts but also on the story behind the towers. I have enjoyed researching and writing this ebook and I'm sure you will enjoy reading it. If you interested in finding out more about the Martello Towers you will find a very extensive bibliography at the end and a reference list.
