Lambeth Bridge
The current structure is a five-span steel arch, designed by engineer Sir George Humphreys and architect Sir Reginald Blomfield and opened on 19 July 1932 by King George V. Obelisks at either end are surmounted by stone pineapples, as a tribute to Lambeth resident, John Tradescant the younger who is said to have grown the first pineapple in Britain.
The previous structure was a suspension bridge, 828 feet long, designed by Peter W. Barlow, which opened as a toll bridge in 1862. It ceased to be a toll bridge in 1879.
