Putney toll booth OFH01_01_01_f01_20

Old Putney Bridge, Putney, Wandsworth, Greater London. Two images on a single glass plate negative, both showing the the toll keeper and toll booth on the Putney side of the old Putney Bridge crossing the River Thames.
The bridge, also known as Fulham Bridge, dated from 1729. It was badly damaged by a river barge in 1870. Repairs were undertaken but its days were numbered and in 1880 work began on a replacement. In the same year the tolls paid to cross the Thames were discontinued. This view is a record of the last toll to be taken by the Putney toll keeper. Shortly after completion of the new crossing in 1886 the bridge and the toll booth were demolished
