Text accompanying the engraving
We now approach the Southwark-bridge, the stupendous iron arches of which unite, with three spans, the city of London and the borough of Southwark. The centre arch extends 240 feet; being 38 feet wider than the monument is high. Southwark, having been granted to the city by Edward III, for the annual payment of £10, in the reign of Edward VI was formed into a twenty-sixth ward, by the name of "Bridge-Ward-Without" [73-74].
