- This bridge is rich in historical background beginning back in 1811. With various reconstructions and improvements made, one of which was mostly by female labor during World War II, its name has changed, officially and unofficially, many times over the years from the Strand Bridge to The Ladies Bridge. The bridge that stands today was completed in 1945 and holds two lanes of traffic and a walkway for pedestrians. Stretching across the Thames River 1,250 feet long and 80 feet wide makes it the longest bridge in all of London.
