Tower Bridge: History • Engineering • Design

Explore London's defining landmark through a new hardcover book documenting 125 years of history, engineering, and design at Tower Bridge. 

Written by Kenneth Powell, 'Tower Bridge: History • Engineering • Design' is meticulously researched and offers readers an insight into the Bridge and the people who have worked tirelessly to maintain it since 1894. The book even contains rare archival images and new photography help to illustrate London’s most iconic landmark in all its glory.

‘This lavish volume, filled with illustrations ancient and modern, tells you everything you might want to know about the bridge’s remarkable engineering and much about the talented nineteenth-century people who imagined it’ - Times Literary Supplement
