I think this is a great photo. Too bad it wasn't selected. But it wouldn't be nearly as good without the person, just in order to appease G-E.

This old picture looks a lot like Waterloo Bridge, but I may be wrong. The real (1962) London Bridge is about half a mile downstream. It is near The Monument in the City of London and London Bridge Station. The previous London Bridge (1831) is now in Lake Havasu City, Arizona - moved circa 1962 I think. You can see it in Google Earth. An American developer named McColloch paid the City of London for it, so it wasn't the Brits paying back war debts. There is a story that McColloch thought that it was Tower Bridge that was for sale. I checked the tags for "London Bridge" and they were mostly on Tower Bridge. So McColloch wasn't the only one.

Good info Max Thank you

Gracias SyLM. It was cold at sunset when I took this picture. Max

I did not know that. Thanks for the info

Thank you for your suggestion. I repositioned this closer to the market.

These are the "Rainbow Tunnels". In the Summer of '66 when Flower Children were coming to San Francisco, a Cal DOT manager responsible for tunnel maintenance had a few buckets of paint of various colors left over from other jobs. He laudably joined in the spirit of the times and instructed his men to paint these rainbows over Highway 101. Even more incredibly, the rainbows have been maintained through thick and thin for over 40 years.

This is one of the two "Rainbow Tunnels".

Thank you to whomever helped me with the location. I look forward to seeing some better satellite imagery in this area.
