Tower Bridge


HistoryBuzz Photo of the day: Colorized Photo of the Tower Bridge, London, UK, under construction, 1889

Fun fact:
In May 1997, the motorcade of United States President Bill Clinton was divided by the opening of the bridge.

The bridge opening split the motorcade in two, much to the consternation of security staff. A spokesman for Tower Bridge is quoted as saying: “We tried to contact the American Embassy, but they wouldn’t answer the phone”.
