This is the last of four similar albums recently bought in a charity shop. This one, as opposed to the others, is not a leporello fold out publication but is in conventional book form with photographic prints. It appears to date from the late Victorian era, perhaps up to 1900. The publishing firm, Rock Brothers, was sold to John Dickinson in 1894,but one picture is of the Thames Water Police floating police station pontoon at Waterloo pier, which replaced old naval hulks in 1900. William Frederick Rock was in the printing business from 1821, when he collaborated with Thomas de la Rue. Rock became wealthy printing topographical, steel-engraved prints on pictorial note paper, fancy stationery, maps and playing cards, as well as books and booklets. Not all of the 150 views will be uploaded! A national landmark, the Tower Bridge. The bridge combines the features of both suspension and bascule (bridge that is raised and lowered) bridges and was opened in 1894 by the then Prince of Wales (Edward VII) and his wife Alexandra. It needed to be high enough to allow sailing ships access to the Pool of London. Shown here with the road sections raised for the passage of a ship.
