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


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]


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 (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)

Picture of the day
Albert Bridge, London

The Albert Bridge is a road bridge over the River Thames in West London, connecting Chelsea on the north bank to Battersea on the south. Designed and built by Rowland Mason Ordish in 1873, it initially operated as a toll bridge but was commercially unsuccessful; the tolls were lifted after six years. The roadway is only 27 feet (8.2 m) wide and the bridge has serious structural weaknesses; it has been reinforced several times but never replaced, despite calls for closure or pedestrianisation.
