Repro ID: P65570
Description: A superb photograph of London Bridge seen from the south bank, and taken from a roof. Large numbers of people are crossing the bridge on foot. To the right of the bridge is Adelaide House, opened in the mid-1920s. It is one of the few buildings from the pre-1970 period to have survived on the north bank of the Upper Pool. In the heyday of the port, London Bridge was the best place for ordinary Londoners to watch ships being unloaded.
