On the 9th May 1874, Victoria Embankment opened to the public, nearly 150 years on, the area affectionally termed as the Embankment, looks as new as the day the granite lined walls was dropped in place. I thought it be a good idea to look behind the scenes of one of the most recognisable river fronts in the world.
This Oil painting illustrates the opening of Victoria Embankment. We link this image from the London Museum website. Why not pop into the museum and have a look?
