Blackfriars Bridge - looking south. The span on right with one disused and one removed track was later dismantled, but the bridge piers have now been used for the rebuilt Blackfriars station.

A slight correction - both the spans visible in this photo were removed. The span in use was to te left and was (is) of completely different construction, with curved arches and no side trusses. In addition, only part of the piers of the old bridge will be used - the extent of the new station will be approximately to the site of the central supporting bridge truss visible in the centre of the pic.

Large upright object to right of bridge was still there last time I was in area. From what I remember it and its twin on other side of river bears an LCDR crest.
