The Aberdeen and Commonwealth Line was formed in 1933, but the name Aberdeen was no longer used in the company's title from 1938 onwards. The Sydney Harbor Bridge was constructed between 1923 and 1932. A technological marvel, it captured the imagination of the world and was used extensively in international promotion of Australia. It appears in at least one other Aberdeen and Commonwealth Line poster.
