A view of the iconic Tower Bridge in London, taken from the south bank outside City Hall. Tower Bridge is over 120 years old and was originally built to ease traffic and maintain boat access with a moveable roadway. It has become one of London's most iconic landmarks. The bascules (the part of the bridge that raises and lowers) were steam powered until 1976 when they were changed to oil and electricity power. When it was built the bridge had the biggest and most sophisticated bascule system in the world. The bridge is still raised and lowered multiple times a day, with the schedule posted online.
