Workmen use a big crane to swing a tile-covered concrete section of the outer casing into place on the Sydney Opera House. More than a million gleaming white tiles will be used before the roof is completed by March but already it presents the striking appearance of soaring white shells reaching out skywards. Construction of the building commenced in March 1959 and proceeded in slow stages over the next fourteen years.
