Photographer's Note

My Wife and I had 24 hours in London recently, so see a show and also to enjoy the scenery and take photos. This is one of my favourites.

Info about Southwark Bridge, from Wikipedia:
Southwark Bridge is an arch bridge for traffic linking Southwark and the City across the River Thames, in London, England. It was designed by Ernest George and Basil Mott and opened in 1921. The bridge is owned and maintained by Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the Corporation of London.

Halfway along the bridge on the Western side is a plaque which is enscribed:
