Building the Chelsea Bridge, 1936

This is Chelsea Bridge, the first Chelsea Bridge. It was opened with some celebration in 1858. It looks a little like its younger cousin the still surviving but beleaguered bridge at Hammersmith, opened in 1887. Unlike Hammersmith less than a hundred years passed before a new Chelsea bridge was needed to cope with the demands of traffic both across and under the bridge.
