NOTES: Mott Hay & Handerson were the engineers for the bridge, which replaced Rennie's original of 1814-1819. Ernest George was responsible for the architectural treatment, such as the granite piers, the pedestrian alcove and other embellishments. Construction began in 1913 and the bridge was opened by King George V on 6 June 1921.
