The current Hammersmith Bridge was designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the same engineer who gave London its sewer system. It took four years to build, from 1883-87, and was built to replace the old bridge which had become unsafe. The bridge was renovated for modern use following a bomb attack in 2000.
