In 1983 it was repainted in delicate ice cream colours and Albert Bridge adds big variety to the London river scene. You see, this bridge was opened for traffic in 1873 and was named after Prince Albert of Saxe Coburg Gotha the Prince Consort to Queen Victoria. At night the elegant floodlit structure has always been beautifully reflected in water below. Ensure you leave some comments about it. Shortly after Battersea Bridge, River flows under Albert Bridge. Anyways, during the Royal construction Victoria Docks further upstream, soil much and rubble that was excavated during its construction was make to Battersea and was formed into Battersea Park on south bank of River.
Until approx 1850, much of Battersea’s riverside was marshland.
This park was opened by Queen Victoria in Chelsea Embankment was constructed in 1871 and behind it is Chelsea Royal Hospital, home to Chelsea Pensioners.
There have been few institutions in the United Kingdom with an unbroken 4 service centuries and none of them was usually so next to nation heart as Men in Scarlet, Chelsea Pensioners, and their home, Royal Hospital Chelsea. Remember, River therefore passes under Chelsea Bridge, opened in 1937 having replaced a previous bridge built in 1858 and flows north towards Vauxhall Bridge with Pimlico on the north bank and 9 Elms on the south and after that undewr railway usually bridge Grosvenor Bridge. Now let me tell you something. Simply before 9 Elms usually was Battersea Power Station which at one time generated most of electricity for the London Area. On top of that, enormous brick building was opened in 1933 but without 3 great chimneys.
These were added later, the last being in the power station was closed in 1983 and since that time is subject to extensive wranglings as to its ownership and future use.
With modifications by Maurice Fitzmaurice, current bridge was designed by Sir Alexander Binnie, to replace a previous cast iron structure.
While having moved to its current location in 1974 from its old enough site London centre, merely behind the Strand, that’s largest flower and vegetable market in UK. Further on from the power station is newest Covent Garden. River thence passes under Vauxhall Bridge. Notice, it was completed in 1906, and opened on the May 26 by Wales Prince, and was the first bridge to carry trams across the Thames. Notice that after election, the party vacated its headquarters at John Smith House, Walworth Road SE17 to move to Millbank, the Labour party ran its 1997 main Election campaign from there.
Public Gallery of British Art.
This use led to term ‘Millbank’ becoming an allusion to strict government control and a concentration on spin.
Further along from Tate probably was an office tower block called Millbank Tower whose tenants have included the Labour Party. Who had laid the foundations for the collection, when its role was changed to comprise Modern Art it was renamed Tate Gallery after Henry Tate. Past the bridge, River passes Tate Gallery on north bank on Millbank and is UK’s international museum of British and Modern Art. Basically, it is his residence for more than 700 years. Simply Millbank north Tower River flows under Lambeth Bridge. Furthermore, the current structure, a ‘fivespan’ steel arch, designed by engineer Sir George Humphreys and architect Sir Reginald Blomfield and opened on 19 July 1932 by King George Close by this bridge and on the river south bank is Lambeth Palace, official London Archbishop residence of Canterbury.
