Mr Monkey in London, September 23rd

"Those levers don't work, you know"

Mr Monkey looking at the old controls of Tower Bridge Mr Monkey looking at an old driving engine

The last things Mr Monkey looked at in the Tower Bridge Exhibition were the control levers and dials and one of the eight driving engines used to open or close the bridge before the hydraulic system was electrified. Mr Monkey was a little disappointed to find out that the modern controls are just a few buttons.
