The Albert Bridge

The Albert Bridge crosses the Thames river from Chelsea to Battersea in London.

As one of London’s oldest suspension bridges, Albert Bridge is also one of the city’s most delicate. Even before opening in 1870, architects were aware of similar bridges collapsing as recently as 20 years earlier. One such incident involved the Broughton Suspension Bridge in Wales when 74 soldiers were crossing the bridge when it collapsed.
