This medal, one of a series issued by the Corporation of the City of London, commemorates the opening of Tower Bridge by Prince Albert in June 1894. The bascule bridge is over the river Thames at Tower Hill. Sir Horace Jones was architect and John Wolfe-Barry the engineer. The upper fixed bridge was for pedestrians when the lower level drawbridge was opened.
