Locals have reminisced over their memories of times spent at the old Scamander Bridge as it continues to be demolished.
Many locals in Scamander have taken time to stop and watch as the old bridge is taken apart in three sections, which will be reused throughout the local community and by a local company.

The bridge has been closed to vehicles since the new bridge was built in 1988, but has since remained open to pedestrians, cyclists, and fishers.
Sharron Rayner, from Scamander Sports Complex, said it would be sad to see the bridge go given it's importance to Scamander.
"It is sad to see it go, it's become a bit of an icon of Scamander if you like," she said.
Michelle Richardson, from Blue Seas Holiday Park, believed many of their guests would miss the bridge.
"A lot of our guests love the bridge, they walk over and fish and have picnics so it will be sadly missed, it really well," she said.
The bridge was designed by prominent Tasmanian engineering Sir Allan Knight, with work beginning in November 1934.
In 2017, the community voted for the demolition of the bridge after the consultation process.
