Information -  This bridge is absolutely choc-a-bloc with traffic - all apparently horse drawn. There is every sort of passenger, and goods vehicle imaginable, some piled high with their material or human cargo, and the queue is both ways. Pedestrians seem to be nearly at saturation point, the vast majority of whom are men with toppers, or bowlers. The Thames barge slipping though one of the arches seems to be full of people as well. The long roofed building at the left is Charing Cross Station.

This bridge is the one which, in 1968, was sold to an American oil baron, who had it transported piece by piece to Lake Havasu City, Arizona and re-built as it was. He paid us about £1,500,000 for it.
