Description

'The Southwark End of Old London-Bridge. From a Drawing taken at Low-Water, 25 November 1831'. Etching by Edward William Cooke (1811-1880) from his 'Views of the old and new London bridges' published in 1833. The narrow piers of the old bridge meant that the movement of water when the tide was changing caused 'rapids', which Londoners enjoyed shooting in small boats.
