The first bridge built across the Thames here was designed by John Rennie, and opened in 1817, being named in honour of the victory over Napoleon two years earlier. The bridge survived until the late 1930s, when it was demolished to make way for the current bridge. Unfortunately, war intervened and while the bridge was partially opened to traffic in 1942, it was not until 1945 that it was completed.
