Unseen images of a lost London (when it really was a capital place to live!)
Tower Bridge (built 1886–1894) a combined bascule + suspension bridge in London which crosses the River Thames. Close to the Tower of London, from which it takes its name, it has become an iconic symbol of London. Officially opened 30.6.1894 by The Prince of Wales (the future King Edward VII), and his wife, Alexandra, Princess of Wales. shown here in 1893.
Edinburgh is a beautiful historic city rich both in culture and history. As the capital of Scotland, there are no questions that it is the busiest hub in Scotland and makes for a perfect weekend trip for those living in the UK. A mere 5 hours train ride from London and a short flight to many different locations in Europe, it's a great place for a stopover as well.
