Back on home ground for this one... Southwark Bridge.
A previous bridge on the site, opened in 1819, was originally known as Queen Street Bridge,
The bridge consisted of three large cast-iron spans supported by granite piers. It was known as the "Iron Bridge" in comparison to London Bridge, the "Stone Bridge". The bridge was notable for having the longest cast iron span, 240 feet (73 m), ever made. The current bridge was opened in 1921 by King George V and it is sometimes known as the "car park bridge" as coach tour drivers use it to park their vehicles.

If you look closely you can just see the top of Tower Bridge, the orange of London Bridge, HMS Belfast, Southwark Cathedral, and, of course, the Shard.
Some excellent, varied, and interesting comments on my street portraits/candids from Nepal, thank you all, and Peter (LexEquine) and Darryl (Carper123) for UAs on Street Life and Philip_H on Potters' Sq.
