View of the celebrations for the new London Bridge which was opened in 1831 by King William IV and Queen Adelaide. In the foreground there is a string of Union Jack flags. Ceremonial barges on the River Thames pass by crowds on the river banks that have gathered to watch the event. At the end of the bridge a hot air balloon can be seen.
