Some great old shots of Barrack St, the Barrack St Bridge and the Horseshoe Bridge

Some people connect Barrack St with the Barrack's Arch at the top of St Georges Tce but that's not the case, different barracks in fact. It was named for the military barracks, built in 1829, that existed along the road at the corner of St Georges Terrace.
