Oddy's Bridge

Efforts are being made by our principal residents to obtain a grant for the construction of a bridge connecting East and West Blowering, In winter time, when the Tumut River is strong and vigorous the West Bloweringites, who produce a lot of corn, wheat, wool, etc., are simply isolated, having a raging river before them and towering hills behind, effectually blocking all possibility of vehicular traffic. We wish our friends all success in endeavoring to obtain this much needed structure. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 20 August 1897 Page 16).
