Scherzer rolling bridge, Garnet Street, Wapping
Scherzer rolling bridge, Garnet Street, Wapping
Electric bridge that is no longer in use and is over the cut that led from Shadwell Basin to the eastern dock of London Dock - now filled in. It is surprising that the Scherzer bridges were electrically powered whilst situated in the midst of the London Hydraulic Power Co supply area. There is a more photographed example at the other end of Shadwell Basin.
