WPC: Heritage

red pillars

These red pillars, built in 1864, “formed part of the old railway bridge which carried the London and Dover into St Paul’s Station.” In 1985 the bridge was taken down due to its inability to support modern trains. The supports (the red pillars) remained. Originally built in rows of three, the third pillar in each row was used to support the new bridge that was later built. The other two were used to support equipment for the new Blackfriars rail bridge. Lot’s more interesting information here. To see more entries in this week’s photo challenge click here. One love 🙂
