Artist's Description

Blackfriars Bridge, which carries the A201 road over the River Thames in London. The bridge was completed in 1869 and consists of five wrought iron arches built to a design by Thomas Cubitt. Built by P.A. Thom & Co. it is owned and maintained by the City Bridge Trust, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. Due to the volume of traffic over the bridge, it was widened between 1907–10, from 70 feet (21 m) to its present 105 feet (32 m). The bridge became internationally notorious in 1982, when the Italian banker Roberto Calvi was found hanged below one of its arches in what was originally believed to be a suicide, but is now officially regarded as a murder.
