Click to enlarge the photo; and no cheating with a map!

The one you are standing on is missing! I am ashamed to say I don't know but would guess Blackfriars and Tower Bridge are in there? Don't laugh at me if I am wrong!

ooh I guess London, Waterloo, Blackfriars, Southwark and Cannon Street Railway ?

if i had to guess, i'd say you were on blackfriars photographing towards the east, and the missing bridge is the millenium walkway

OK, I think they are London Bridge; Cannon St railway bridge; Southwark Bridge; Blackfriars rail bridge and Blackfriars bridge. The missing one is the former Blackfriars rail bridge, where only the piers remain. But it may come back under the Thameslink expansion plans!
What a brilliant picture! I was standing on London Bridge admiring a barge being navigated up the tide with a huge pair of oars when it banged into one of the piers of Cannon St bridge. The dent they made is visible to this day....

Well done Chris for getting all five right, and in the right order!

Travelgirl got the correct missing bridge - or at least, the one I was thinking of - Chris is of course right that one of the Blackfriars Bridges is missing all but its piers.

And points for everyone else :-)

ChrisP - construction of the new station that will reuse the old Blackfriars rail bridge piers as part of the Thameslink improvements is already under way!
