Thanks and acknowledgements

I would like to thank the following people and websites for their help in my researches for this website:

Is It The Most Southerly Suspension Bridge?

It's a claim that have often seen on the web and have been happy to repeat, but is it true? I am indebted to Ana Berbel who wrote to me recently with a question about a very similar old bridge built in 1918 over the Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego. Clearly it was further south than the Bodie Creek Bridge and it predated the one on the Falkland Islands.
These pictures she sent me show that it was recently destroyed in a storm. Maybe this proud claim is now valid after all?

I have also found some terrific photographs and descriptions on these websites.

Thanks to everyone who has posted these photos on the web. Without them I would have no idea what it looks like now. Seeing them all makes me feel as though I have been there.

I would also like to thank all those who have either commented in the guestbook or have taken the trouble to email me with their feedback, accounts of their visits to this area and the many photographs they have sent me. It has been a delight to receive such encouraging feedback from all over the world.

Finally, a great big thank you to my grandfather Charles Peters for building the bridge and taking his photos. Thanks to my father 'Pete' for letting me scan the pictures and thanks to my wife Audrey for her patience while I built this site.
