Occidental Jetty, Canvey Island

Art photograph of Occidental Jetty over the Thames, Canvey Island, England, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Oil Bridge.

Taken at Canvey Island, England. The water beneath the bridge is the Thames.

This “bridge” is really a jetty, which was built but never actually used for its intended purpose after the permit was revoked. At about 1550 meters long and £10 million to build, it makes for an expensive exercise in futility, but it’s a great landmark anyway. I heard there were plans to tear it down, but I hope that doesn’t happen.

There’s another photo from this place called Pier-Shaped, and a sepia version of this one called Oil Bridge II.
