Old Start of the A4 & A40 - Coppermine - 10582.jpg
Old Start of the A4 & A40

The A4 & A40 used to start in the City of London. Due to the IRA bombing campian in the late 1960's-early 90's, the roads around bank were declasfided and now are unnumbered.

B500 - west end (from pavement level)

Not such a good vantage point, but with more time to compose the shot! One of the gatehouses of Ely Place can be seen in this view. The taxi behind the bus is at the Farringdon Street junction. Traffic congestion in this street is much worse since the City of London closed off Shoe Lane/St Bride Street - but this is a Camden street, so perhaps the City doesn't mind! Note that of the eleven vehicles in this queue, only one is liable for the congestion charge!

Looking upstream from Tower Bridge, we see firstly London Bridge, then the Cannon Street rail bridge, then the Millennium footbridge and finally Blackfriars Bridge (the rail bridge at Blackfriars obscuring the road bridge just beyond). These are the only bridges that cross into the boundaries of the City of London (on the northern bank, right).
