Houses on the north bank of the Thames at Hammersmith
The first of the real London bridges is Hammersmith. The bridge is an ornate suspension bridge built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette (1818-1891) in 1887.
It replaced the earlier suspension bridge built by William Tierney Clarke in 1827 (at a cost of £85,000), which has the honour of being the first suspension bridge built in London.
