On our way to the Tate Britain, we stopped at the Vauxhall Bridge for a look at some architecture lining the Thames River. We crossed over to the east end to gain the view down the river to the Battersea Power Plant and the adjacent Frank Gehry-designed Prospect Place residential development that opened in 2022. With my telephoto lens, I was able to get some good shots. I also shot photos of the 2017 cube-shaped U.S. Embassy designed by KieranTimberlake. Happily, the location of this bridge afforded me the opportunity to see and photograph two pretty recent architecture marvels in London.

The name Vauxhall comes from the famous pleasure gardens of London. These gardens used to have exciting rides and masked balls for nearly a hundred years. In 1844 a clown sailed down the Thames in a bathtub pulled by geese. Huge crowds gathered to witness this event. Sadly the pleasure gardens had to be shutdown in 1858 because of the toxic stench of the much polluted Thames. There used to be a bridge here built in 1816. It was the first bridge to carry trams pulled by horses. That bridge was demolished and this new beautiful bridge was built on the same spot. The current bridge was completed in 1906 and inaugurated by Prince of Wales before he became King George V. It was designed by Sir Alexander Binnie. It links Pimlico with Vauxhall area. It is a granite bridge enforced by steel. It is a red and yellow bridge embellished with giant bronze statues of allegorical figures crafted by Alfred Drury and Frederick Pomeroy. If you look closely one of these figures is holding a replica of St. Paul’s Cathedral in it’s hands.

Chiefly of interest as it's right by the MI6 HQ building seen in several of the James Bond movies. Otherwise it's just a busy bridge with endless streams of traffic crossing the river.

Stayed nearby and is another old London Bridge with history. Distinctive red sides make it a focal point for the area. Can get busy and another great south/north of the river connection

Vauxhall bridge is yet another London bridge with more detail on its sides, better spotted by boat than when on it, also James Bond HQ nearby.

I did not come for the rather ordinary bridge. I came for a photo of the building they call Babylon on the Thames - the MI6 headquarters, bombed in the James Bond movie. It is a most outstanding building for a so called secret service. But it had a huge crane in front of it - damn. So I had to go to the other side of the bridge for a better angle and then saw another set of green buildings that looked sympatico - must have been designed by the same architect. Architect Terry Farrell was influenced by Mayan and Aztec designs in his building.
