South Quay Footbridge

South Quay Footbridge by Chris Wilkinson and Jan Bobrowski, Canary Wharf, London
South Quay Footbridge by Chris Wilkinson and Jan Bobrowski, 1997
Between South Quay and Heron Quays
Canary Wharf, West India Docks
London, October 2009

“In its original form when it opened in 1997, the bridge connected the quay walls of a dock basin at Canary Wharf in east London, providing an S-shaped walkway, each half of the 'S' suspended from an inclined mast. The two masts inclined in opposite directions, and the south half of the bridge could pivot open when water vessels needed to pass through (which was not often).”
(South Quay Footbridge, The Happy Pontist)

I'd be so lost in the docks, they have completely changed since I went there...
