Although there are 60 pictures in the exhibition there are only 13 that can be viewed on this website.
Sixty rare images of London, sourced from the London Metropolitan Archives, are now on show at Tower Bridge. The photographs, some of which date back to the late 19th century, represent six categories of London life: Tower Bridge, waterways, work, life, buildings and boats.
