London Tower Bridge Tea Towel
This beautiful tea towel features London’s Tower Bridge and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves London architecture.
Plans for the Tower Bridge were devised around 1876 when the east of London became extremely crowded and a bridge across the Thames in that area of the city seemed a necessity. It would take another eight years – and lots of discussions about the design – before construction of the bridge started.
The bridge, designed by city architect Horace Jones in collaboration with John Wolfe Barry, would eventually be completed in 1894. Five contractors and nearly 450 workers were involved in the construction of the 265 meter long bridge. It took 11,000 tons of steel to build the framework. At the time many people disliked its Victorian Gothic design, but over time the bridge became one of London’s most famous symbols.
The designs are digitally printed on to 100% premium cotton fabric and have a handy hook sewn into the corner for hanging them up.
The tea towels are individually wrapped and presented in a belly band.
76cm x 48cm Hemmed 4 sides.
