As the dawnbirds sing
On a cold and misty morning
By the Albert Bridge
This rather shaky-feeling Victorian suspension bridge across the Thames was built in 1873 and renovated eleven years later by the legendary Sir Joseph Bazalgette. Has a sign on it saying "All troops must break step when marching across this bridge".
The Pogues wrote a song about it.
