Excerpt from The Builder, 1842, Vol. 2
Westminster-bridge has been where it is, and as it is, for a century; it was there when the designs for the new Houses were made, and we never heard that to pull down West minster-bridge to nearly low water was to be a necessary accompaniment to the adoption of any of the designs. If you and the other Commissioners had known that such alterations were contemplated, you would not, we are sure, have allowed the works to have pro ceeded as they have done, until nearly two thirds of the whole to above high water had been completed, including the renewal or repair of the arch stones.
