Tower Bridge is so much a part of the London landscape that it’s sometimes easy to forget it’s not always been there. In fact it was built with human hands, without the aid of vast mechanized cranes or lorry-mounted cement mixers. Impressive, no? What’s more impressive is that these photographs have been lost in the ether for years, emerging only recently from a carrier bag beneath a bed to show the world how one of London’s most recognizable landmarks was put together. If that doesn’t astound and delight you in equal measure, then nothing will.
