In a few months time, Tower Bridge is planning to unveil a  ‘Walk of Fame’ remembering some of the people who worked on the bridge over its lifetime.

And buried under the new ‘Walk of Fame’ will be a 2017 time capsule, and they are calling for the public to submit something to be placed in the capsule before it is sealed shut.

To enter, submit a note, relic or object that captures the essence of a cherished London memory, along with 100 words detailing the significance of the object and why it should be included.

The object which encapsulates this story can also be anything: a ticket stub, a handwritten note, a photograph, an audio recording, a video on a USB stick, a reel of ribbon, a piece of clay found on Tower Bridge beach, sheet music – anything.

All they ask is that it is non-perishable and fits inside a small matchbox
(15mm, 37mm x 53mm).

Send to ‘Freepost: TOWER BRIDGE EXHIBITION’ or email [email protected] before 5pm on 13th February.

Forty submissions will be chosen from all the entries and buried beneath the 40th decorative plaque, and could be unearthed during conservation works in 40 years’ time.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
