Tower Bridge, London


Tower Bridge is one of London's iconic sites.  It's a lovely structure that I've seen many times, but this was the only time I saw it opening its drawbridge leaves to let a larger rivercraft pass.  This is shown in sequence in these photos:

Technically Tower Bridge is a double-leaf bascule (drawbridge) type that spans the River Thames.  It was completed in 1894 and has been pleasing tourists ever since.

I had 't notice on prior visits that there are grotesques on the Bridge.  One of these was used in last weekend's One Clue Mystery contest.  It was recognized by George G -- Congratulations, George!
