Keilor Iron or Basket Bridge

 
Browsing through the photographs at the State Library of Victoria taken by Ruth Hollick, this photo came up as an unidentified country bridge.  It is, however, the Keilor Iron Basket Bridge, taken circa 1930.  See more of the history of the bridge on the Time Travellers website.
