According to Mr Jock Robertson of Chowilla Station, from stories handed down through his family, tenders were called for the building of a bridge to cross Lake Littra inlet in the early 1900’s. Lake Littra’s inlet is actually at the bottom of the Lake and the Outlet is at the Top of the Lake. The successful person that had the job of building the bridge thought that the inlet was at the top of the Lake and built this bridge actually over the outlet. By building the bridge in the wrong location, the authorities refused to pay the contractor and it was reported that the contractor was not able to pay his debts for building the bridge and committed suicide off of the bridge.
