English: London Bridges

A busy scene in the Upper Pool, looking upriver towards London Bridge. The dome of St Paul’s rises above the horizon on the north side, with the Monument to the Great Fire of London visible to its right. Clusters of lighters dot the river, some rafted together, while others surround steam vessels to receive cargo for taking ashore. The image is signed 'W L Wyllie', lower left.

This work was exhibited in the Special Exhibition Gallery, October 1974 and again in 1987 for ‘Masters of the Sea’ (Exhibition Number: 144).

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 100 years or less.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
