Shelley's first wife, Harriet Westbook drowned herself here in 1818.. In this photograph, the bridge in the distance is the Serpentine Bridge, which allows traffic to cross this delightful "40-acre artifical lake" in the midle of London that was created "by damming the West Borne, a stream that no longer exists" (Wurman, 72).
