LONDON BRIDGES

 A recent visit to London allowed the opportunity to explore a few of London’s bridges.

Not all of the old London Bridge fell down! The last remaining remnants are two stone alcoves  located in Victoria Park, East London in 1860. Formerly the haunt of thieves and brigands during the bridge’s life, one came in very handy during a brief rain storm. Strangely enough, felt right at home.

The Romans were the first to bridge the Thames. Subsequent “LONDON” bridges have been raised at this very site.

Remarkable blend of the old and new with remnants of old wooden wharf structures in the foreground and the stunning architecture of the “Shard” in the background.
