Good morning by the river edge! This gorgeous image of the river Thames and London Docklands was captured a few days ago, by one of our long term time-lapse cameras, at sunset. From the stunning #westferryprintworks project. Swipe ➡️ for image detail.
In 1992 Albert bridge was painted unusual colours to make it more visible in poor conditions and avoid being damaged by ships. The tollbooths at either end are the only surviving examples of bridge tollbooths in London. The bridge was found to be structurally unsound and despite numerous efforts its condition continues to degrade. The severe rotting of its timber deck is caused by the urine of the many dogs using it as a route to nearby Battersea Park. 🐩 The sculpture in the foreground is Atalanta by Derwent Wood.
