Fulham has followed Budapest in installing a plaque to honour iconic Brittish bridge designer William Tierney Clark.
The engineer and architect designed the original Hammersmith Bridge, which became the first suspension bridge across the Thames on completion in 1827.
Although this was replaced by the current crossing later in the 19th Century, Clark had by then completed the famous Chain Bridge in Budapest.
Linking the Buda and Pest areas of the Hungarian capital, this structure was a symbol of social change as, for the first time, a toll had to be paid by every user, including the nobility.
A plaque commemorating Clark was installed in Budapest in 1998.
Sixteen years later, Fulham has followed suit, with a bronze plaque unveiled yesterday in front of St George’s new residential development, Fulham Reach.
