The People of Tower Bridge
We need your help
Over the past few years, we've learnt a lot about the people who worked at Tower Bridge from their descendants: Charlotte Olive Dora Burch, the first female employee at Tower Bridge; Keshavji Shamji Budhbhatti, the engineer who came from India and helped build the Bridge; and Friend Samuel Penney, the head of the diving team who were paid £10 per minute to descended 10m into the river to excavate its foundations.
We would not know about them without you, the public. With the help of your memories, your stories, letters, photographs we have heard about the people who worked at the Bridge; from its construction to its operation; from 1886 to today.
