About this object
A black and white photograph of the Bridge Hotel in Mataura.

This site had several hotels on it from 1868 (when Mataura's first swing bridge opened) until 1958 when it was demolished to make room for the Mataura freezing works hostel. A full history of the various owners and some of the characters who stayed there is set out on pages 215-218 of the book 'Mataura, City of the Falls'.
