TFA?[edit]

Have you thought of proposing this article to be a Today's Featured Article? Bob talk 09:39, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

The?[edit]

Most books seem to say "the Albert Bridge", but WP articles seem to pointedly avoid the the. Any reason why? Dicklyon (talk) 04:43, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Having now examined dozens of books (on Google book search), I find none that always drop the the in sentence context. So I'm going to put the into our sentences where it seems appropriate. Dicklyon (talk) 21:34, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

It is just commonly referred to as Albert Bridge. The the is not a title. Simply south...... fighting ovens for just 7 years 09:22, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Making a recording[edit]

Hello,

I am thinking of doing a recording for the Albert Bridge page. I am new to the recording scene, so I'd like to ask, does one have to read out the infobox on the side as well? Also, I presume that I do not have to read out the contents and all of the references and footnotes, or is this not the case?

Help much appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adrianburbie (talkcontribs) 08:32, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

No idea, but you can probably find the answers at Wikipedia:WikiProject Spoken Wikipedia or ask on that project's talk page. I notice someone else has already started a discussion there. Modest Genius talk 14:32, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

What is the other Thames bridge never to be replaced?[edit]

It seems like it would make sense to provide a name and a link to the other bridge since it was brought up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.176.47.205 (talk) 19:14, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

The article does state this - it's Tower Bridge. Modest Genius talk 20:57, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Dog urine[edit]

The rule is that extraordinary claims require extraordinary sources. The claim that dog urine rotted the boards is referenced to a book by Chris Roberts who is not apparently a structural engineer. There is a film about the refurbishment of the bridge here. No mention of dog piss at all. Are there any other sources? Mr Stephen (talk) 19:26, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
