"Tower Bridge"

Work began on Tower Bridge in 1886, following many years of debate on whether a suitable design could be found to accommodate all interested trades and parties. Until that time, the only real method of crossing the Thames was at London Bridge, which was by now becoming hugely congested. An estimated 168,000 people and 20,498 vehicles were crossing the bridge daily, and not without long delays. There were two main criteria that the final design needed to comply with: firstly, to offer 140ft (43m) clearance for the tall masted ships to enter London pool, and also to allow continuous movement of people and traffic.
