Sunday Bridges, Great Britain, London, Tower Bridge

 
Posted by Picasa


Wikipedia says:"Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London, England, over the River Thames. It is close to the Tower of London, which gives it its name. It has become an iconic symbol of London. Work on the bridge started in 1886 and it took 8 years to finish, so in 1894 it was ready.

The bridge consists of two towers which are tied together at the upper level by means of two horizontal walkways which are designed to withstand the horizontal forces exerted by the suspended sections of the bridge on the landward sides of the towers".
