Description: An artist's impression of the future Tower Bridge, included in the 'Illustrated London News' of 26 June 1886, five days after the laying of the foundation stone by the Prince of Wales. The architect Sir Horace Jones died before the bridge was completed in 1894, and his designs were slightly modified, but this illustration captures the essence of his vision.
