Tower Bridge

Yesterday, on my last attendance of the Research Committee meeting, I left Paris one hour earlier to take pictures of the Tower Bridge for a school project (my son’s!). The bridge is thankfully located on the right Tube line, a few stops away from the RSS, so trip and visit took less than one hour.

The way the bridge works when lifting its central part is not immensely detailed but the older engine room when the power was based on coal for engines and on water for hydraulic machinery can be visited. This is a fairly good example of Victorian architecture and engineering (which may explain why it has been selected for that school project).
The weather was nice and crisp, and views from the top gallery were quite enjoyable (despite my rushing thru!).
