Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built in 1886–1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London. Tower Bridge is one of five London bridges now owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. It is the only one of the Trust’s bridges not to connect the City of London directly to the Southwark bank, as its northern landfall is in Tower Hamlets. More on the Tower Bridge

The River Thames is a river that flows through southern England. It is the longest river entirely in England and the second longest in the United Kingdom, after the River Severn. While it is best known for flowing through London, the river also flows alongside other towns and cities, including Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames and Windsor. In an alternative name, derived from its long tidal reach up to Teddington Lock in south west London, the lower reaches of the river are called the Tideway. The section of the river running through Oxford is traditionally called the Isis. More on The River Thames

Karl Theodor Wagner (Wien 1856 – Perchtoldsdorf 1921) – Austrian painter, landscape painter and author of port views and scenes from the Dutch canals. Well-known paintings of the artist testify to his many journeys – to Italy (eg landscapes from the Lake Lugano, landscapes from the south), the Netherlands, Belgium (numerous wharves, flower markets) or to London (views of the Thames and Tower Bridge). His works – mostly painted with oil, rarely watercolor – often appear at art auctions. More on Karl Theodor Wagner
