"Strand-on-the-Green, below Kew Bridge, has no noticeable features...
The river here is crossed by a fine lattice railway bridge, just below the islands."
Henry Taunt 1885
The differences between the old and new photographs are subtle. Kew Bridge was rebuilt with fewer arches in 1903; the distant waterworks chimney now marks the Kew Bridge Steam Museum and shares the skyline with modern tower blocks. The City Barge pub in the foreground had its riverside frontage restored after it was largely destroyed in a Second World War bombing raid.
