Pedestrians walking along the South bank of the Thames, in the More London development area around City Hall, with Tower Bridge behind, built 1886-94, opposite the Tower of London on the river Thames, linking the boroughs of Southwark and Tower Hamlets, London, England. The bridge is both suspension bridge and bascule bridge, with the lower section rising using hydraulic motors to allow for the passing of boats. It is 244m long with 2 65m towers built on piers in the river. Picture by Manuel Cohen
