Tower Bridge Sunrise

£50.00£2,500.00

Tower Bridge is one of London’s defining Landmarks. Designed by architect Sir Horace Jones and civil engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry, it is a combined bascule and suspension bridge, crossing the River Thames close to the Tower of London. It was built between 1886 and 1894. It has two towers, in Victorian Gothic style, that are connected with two walkways. These are constructed so they can resist horizontal forces from suspended parts of the bridge. The base of each tower holds machines that lift two parts of the bridge so the bridge can allow the passage of river traffic beneath it.

Five companies and 432 workers worked on its construction. It has 70,000 tons of concrete in foundations only and some 10,000 tons of steel and is covered in Cornish granite and Portland stone as means of protection for steel structure and for the aesthetics of a beautifully appealing landmark.
