NOTES: The bridge was designed with the aid of Sir George Humphreys and Topham Forrest, architect to the London County Council. Humphreys dealt with the constructional engineering but Blomfield was called in to deal with the elevations. He first designed a granite-faced bridge but on the advice of Humphreys the elevations were redesigned in steel, with the piers being the only features left in granite. Opened in 1932 and considered by Blomfield to be one of the works he wished to be remembered for. This drawing is possibly the one exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1925 (no. 1115).
