View of the river Thames looking towards Old Waterloo Bridge. This river scene photographed by George Davison Reid on the River Thames includes Old Waterloo Bridge, Lambeth Lead Works and Spiller's Millennium Mill. In 1926, the London County Council voted to demolish the bridge, and had done so by 1937. The shot tower from the Lead Works was a landmark feature. Shot for guns was made there by dropping molten lead from the melting chamber at the top. It would fall through sieves down to water at the bottom, where it hardened and formed into balls for bullets.
