Card - Save Me - Cuttagee Bridge
'Save Me - Cuttagee Bridge' card is printed on 300gsm Sovereign Silk card. It is blank inside with the original artwork information printed on the back. Available in square design (145 x 145mm) it is accompanied by a plain envelope.
This artwork was created in response to the Local Council's decision to replace this iconic wooden bridge with a dual lane concrete one. Many in the community have grouped together to fight this decision into one that repairs the bridge whilst still keeping its heritage appeal.
‘I love these old wooden bridges. They are single lane crossing, which means you must slow down and ensure there are no oncoming cars before you cross. Mostly, the traffic approaching from the north has right of way. There’s an old world courtsey as you give a friendly wave or nod to the cars as they leave the bridge and drive past you. I love that in this fast paced world you are forced to slow down and sometimes stop, giving you the opportunity to take a moment and look at the beauty that surrounds you. These iconic bridges are a piece of history nestled in a pristine part of the far south coast of NSW. Crossing them is the soundtrack of many memories for those who holiday here and those fortunate enough to call it home.’
