|TOWER OF LONDON—Built during the time span between 1886 an 1894, the Tower Bridge is 800 feet long and its towers are 213 feet tall. Designed by Sir Horace Jones, the city architect. The bridge is built with Cornish granite and Portland stone. More than 35,000 tons of concrete were used per tower. The 200 foot center span can be raised to about 85 degrees to allow river traffic to pass. Two suspension spans connect the towers to the river banks.|
