Wooden Wonders: Victoria's Timber Bridges - Paperback

2006, ISBN: 186447100X

[SR: 7545981], Paperback, [EAN: 9781864471007], Hyland House Publishing, Hyland House Publishing, Book, [PU: Hyland House Publishing], 2006-10-01, Hyland House Publishing, At once a narrative of timber bridges history, an exploration of the development of road and rail transport, a showcase of Australian design ingenuity, and a regional Victorian tour guide. While showcasing the ingenuity of Australian design and workmanship and the amazing durability of native hardwoods, it also captures something of the beauty of simple structures that have been hewn from their landscape. This book tells the story of familiar structures that still, perhaps, remain a characteristic part of Victoria's, cultural landscape. It looks at the pioneering role and progress of Victoria's regional pathways, from the mountain forest, of Gippsland to the western goldfields and the mighty Murray River, and includes a look at footbridges and flumes. Finally, it briefly reflects on some of the threats responsible for the recent decline of timber bridges, as well as ways in which local communities and agencies have worked for their preservation. While it will not be possible to preserve all of these vernacular structures, this book will stand as a tribute to their unassuming but considerable contribution to Australia's economic and social history. "Wooden Wonders" is a labour of love both by noted historian Dr Don Chambers, who undertook his research for the National Trust's Timber Bridge Study; and also by the Trust's Timber Bridges Committee, which has spent years working to protect and promote the bridges. It is richly illustrated both in colour and dramatic black-and-white, and includes many historical photographs not previously published., 278122, Civil Engineering, 278123, Building Construction & Materials, 922352, Environmental, 278137, Foundations & Soil Mechanics, 278132, Hydraulic Engineering, 922354, Mechanics, 278131, Road & Transport, 278134, Structural Engineering, 278138, Surveying, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 923008, Higher Education, 922364, Education, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 571044, Civil Engineering, 564346, Engineering, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
