View from Donnington Bridge in the 1940s

View from the footbridge over the Thames which stood close to the site of Donnington Bridge until 1962. Aston’s Eyot is in the centre middle distance and the Kidneys Nature Park to the right of the picture. Long Bridges just out of sight on the left. The Poplars in the distance are probably on the northern edge of Aston’s Eyot and three or four still survive. The whole area is noticably free of the scrub, marsh and woodland which now prevail. Note Tom Tower on the horizon, left of centre, and boathouses below.
