This book tells the stories of all 33 Thames bridges in Greater London, from Hampton Court in the west to Tower Bridge. As well as the road bridges, it includes all the railway bridges and the three pedestrian bridges. It describes not only the present bridges, but also the previous bridges on each site.
The book is liberally illustrated with the author's own photographs, as well as a wide range of engravings and paintings, including work by Monet, Turner, Constable and Canaletto. There are also a number of rare images, including designs for bridges not actually built.
