London News: New London Bridge opened

1st August 1831

On this day, 1st August 1831, the New London Bridge was opened in London.  At this time, Allan Cunningham was living at Strand-On-The-Green, just up river.  It is interesting to wonder whether Mr Cunningham went to the opening celebrations, or stood on the new London Bridge observing the demolition taking place nearby.
