Quote:Bridge or not??

. . . or not, actually.

Those columns once supported a railway bridge, built about eighty years ago, which became insufficiently strong to deal with modern day train traffic and was subsequently dismantled in (I believe) 1985.
The current bridge, next to it took, its place
Blackfriars Station, on the south side of the Thames has been extended out onto the bridge and a part of it now stands upon some of the old supports.
