Construction of Tower Bridge (1886-1894)

Tower Bridge (built 1886-1894) is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London, England, over the River Thames. It is close to the Tower of London, from which it takes its name. It has become an iconic symbol of London.

These photographs have been unveiled after a stash of hundred-year-old photos were found in a skip. The pictures were retrieved by a caretaker who was looking after a building being turned into flats in 2006 and have spent the last five years in a carrier bag underneath his bed.

  1. Awesome blog you have here. I actually found myself going back threw all your posts over about 2 days just taking it all in. One suggestion I do have it that you get some sort of comment spam filter so the advertisement comments and obvious bot comments don't clutter any posts. Great work though I bookmarked the site and will keep coming back as long as you are posting new(old) content.
