The old Vauxhall Bridge in 1829.
On the 26th of May, 1906, the new Vauxhall Bridge opened in London. By the time it opened it was five years behind schedule, following a construction period that had brought all sorts of problems.

The Prince of Wales, who would go on to be King George V, oversaw the opening ceremony.
The bridge was originally built to carry trams, but the tram tracks were abandoned in 1951.
