Southwark Bridge. Coordinates : John Rennie's Southwark iron bridge completed in 1819 Southwark ( Br [ˈsʌðɨk]) [ 1 ] 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 . It was built by Sir William Arrol & Co. and opened in 1921. [ 2 ] The bridge is owned and maintained by Bridge House Estates , a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation . [ edit ] History A previous bridge on the site, designed by John Rennie , opened in 1819, and was originally known as Queen Street Bridge, as shown on the 1818 John Snow Map of London.

Halfway along the bridge on the Western side is a plaque which is inscribed: The plaque on the west side of the bridge. The bridge provides access to Upper Thames Street on the north bank and, due to the ring of steel , there is no further road access to the City and the north. The current bridge was given Grade II listed structure status in 1995. [ 3 ] Dictionary of Victorian London - Victorian History - 19th Century London - Social History.

Moon Phases: -1899 to -1800. The following table gives the date and time ( Universal Time ) of all phases of the Moon for a period of one century. This data is provided primarily to assist in historical research projects. For the year 2000, the length of the mean synodic month (New Moon to New Moon) is 29.530588 days (=29d12h44m03s). However, the length of any one synodic month can vary from 29.26 to 29.80 days due to perturbing effects of the Sun on the Moon's eccentric orbit. The phase table also indicates whether an eclipse of the Sun or Moon occurs on the date in question and gives the eclipse type. An eclipse of the Sun can occur only at New Moon, while an eclipse of the Moon can occur only at Full Moon. In any calendar year there are a minimum of two solar and two lunar eclipses. The maximum number of eclipses in any one year is 7 (4 solar and 3 lunar, or 5 solar and 2 lunar).

The last column of the phase table lists ΔT , the value used to convert Dynamical Time to Universal Time . Bishopsgate Institute - Library and Archive Collections. MOGG POCKET MAP OF LONDON.

Collage of Illustrations Index to Illustrations Frontispiece 1 Frontispiece 2 "Geologists say that the land upon which London is built has subsided 68 feet during the last 500 years. This doubtless is traceable to substratiform deposits, lunar attraction, or causes equally occult; but whatever it is, the figures 68 disarm suspicion. BUT didn't you know? " "No! " " Quite so," continued the affable gentleman with whom I shared the first-class carriage, " though we have grown so used to it by this time that we almost forget London ever existed in any other form.

. [ Palazzo Degli Horse Guards] Hullo ! "Come! Somewhat bewildered, I alighted from the train and followed my friend, having heard him instruct a cut-throat looking ruffian regarding my luggage in a jargon I could not understand. I was dumb with amazement. [Cathedral and Piazza Di St. [Lago di Piccadilly - Late Piccadilly Circus] Construction of Nelson’s Column, 1844. The London Alphabet. Although this Alphabet of London that I found at the Bishopsgate Institute dates from more than one hundred and fifty years ago, it is remarkable how many of the landmarks illustrated are still with us. The facade of newly-opened “Northern Station” which will be uncovered again after renovations in 2013 – at the terminus we know as King’s Cross – reveals that this alphabet was produced in the eighteen fifties. The Houses of Parliament which were begun in 1840 and took thirty years to complete were still under construction then, and, consequently, Big Ben is represented by an undersized artist’s impression of how it was expected to look.

Naturally, I was especially intrigued by - “O’s the market for Oranges, eastward a long way. If you first ask for Houndsditch you won’t take the wrong way.” I wonder what East London market this could refer to? Pictures courtesy Bishopsgate Institute. The British Beehive, 1840/1867. 1800S. Forgotten Images: Before Aldwych and Kingsway | Discovering London - Discovering London. In October 1905 King Edward VII officially opened Kingsway and Aldwych; “The largest and most important improvement in London since the construction of Regent Street in 1820.”

London County Council produced a special souvenir programme for the event. This map from the programme give some idea of the scale of the works. The buff area of development covers many of the streets that were demolished. Map showing part of the Kingsway & Aldwych development of 1905 The programme was written by Laurence Gomme, Clerk to the Council, who was also a keen historian. The programme enthusiastically details the construction of the whole development but such an enthusiast for London’s history and architecture couldn’t let the new development open without also documenting what had been destroyed. So Gomme provides us with numerous superb and unique images of many of the old streets and courts, immediately prior to their demolition in 1901. Plummer's Court Sardinia Place Sardinia Street New Inn Banqueting Hall. Horsemonger Lane Gaol. Horsemonger Lane Gaol (also known as the Surrey County Gaol or the New Gaol ) was a prison close to present-day Newington Causeway in Southwark , south London. [ edit ] History Constructed between 1791 and 1799 to a design by George Gwilt the Elder , architect surveyor to the county of Surrey , this was once the largest prison in the county, and was adjacent to Sessions House, a court building also designed by Gwilt.

It was built to replace the old county gaol housed at what had been the nearby 'White Lion Inn' on Borough High Street, Southwark (informally called the 'Borough Gaol') dating from the Tudor period. Horsemonger Lane remained Surrey’s principal prison and place of execution up to its closure in 1878. The gaol was demolished in 1881 and the site is today a public park, Newington Gardens , adjacent to the present Inner London Crown Court , opened in January 1921.
