Tower Bridge reflections – London, September 2006
This marvel of Victorian engineering crosses the river at the eastern edge of the City of London and was completed in 1894. It was the first bridge to be built east of London Bridge and took 432 men 8 years to build. It is a bascule bridge, meaning that it can lift up to accommodate tall shipping traffic – it still does so several times a week and it’s still exciting every time I see it happening. Tours of the bridge’s internal structure are available, including a walk across the high-level walkways above the road.
