On November 29th, 1958, Whites Aviation captured this aerial view of the Auckland Harbour Bridge under construction. The photo, looking south over the harbour towards Westhaven, St Mary's Bay, and Ponsonby, highlights a massive 580-foot-long, 1200-ton section being manoeuvred into place on a barge. Blustery winds initially challenged the operation, requiring a second attempt to successfully position the section on December 1st.

This crucial step marked a significant milestone in the bridge's four-year construction journey, involving a team of 1000 workers. The bridge officially opened on May 30th, 1959, at a cost equivalent to $24 million today. Initially tolled at both ends, the tolls were removed in 1984.
