We have received an Email from Gilbert
van der Jagt who tells us he is a historian currently
researching a biography of Alex Mair, who was Premier
of NSW when the bridge was opened. He aims to
publish a book in 2004.
He says that Alex Mair was a
clean-shaven, solidly built gentleman, who had gone
bald in his mid-twenties. He is quite sure Alex
Mair is making the speech.

Thank you Gilbert!!
