The owner of Towerbridge Technologies, Tim Trotter, is an Englishman who moved to the United States in 1999 with his wife Karen, a Knox County native. Since he is so far away from his homeland, having his company reflect his background was an interesting and nice idea. Although Tim is a Knox County resident today, England and Tower Bridge are always on his mind.
Completed in 1894 this piece of Victorian engineering has become an international symbol of London. You can now visit the inside to learn more about the bridge's history and enjoy spectacular views from the walkways.
Originally, London Bridge was the only crossing over the Thames. As London grew, so more bridges were added, but these were all to the west of London Bridge, since the area east of London Bridge had become a busy port. In the 19th century, the east end of London became so densely populated that public pressure mounted for a bridge to the east of London Bridge, as journeys for pedestrians and vehicles were being delayed literally by hours. Finally in 1876, the Corporation of London, who were responsible for that part of the Thames, decided that the problem could be put off no longer.
It took 8 years, 5 major contractors and the relentless labour of 432 construction workers to build Tower Bridge. Two massive piers had to be sunk into the river bed to support the construction, over 11,000 tons of steel provided the framework for the towers and walkways. This was then clad in Cornish granite and Portland stone, both to protect the underlying steelwork and to give the bridge a more pleasing appearance.
