London Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Tower Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, Hungerford Bridge . . .

These are crossings of the River Thames as it winds through central London. Most of this list are famous landmarks, iconic structures featured in photographs and and songs, paintings and films. But Hungerford Bridge? Hungerford Bridge carries trains between Charing Cross and Waterloo stations, transporting tens of thousands of people every day from one side of the river to the other.

It’s like one of those personality tests: which would you rather be? The well-known and instantly recognisable Tower Bridge? Or the generally unnoticed Hungerford Bridge, quietly helping countless people get where they want to go without any of them knowing your name?
