Tower Bridge (Paperback): Harry Cory-Wright Tower Bridge (Paperback)
Harry Cory-Wright; Introduction by Glen Ellis
R339 R268 Discovery Miles 2 680 Save R71 (21%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Tower Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world. Designed by Sir Horace Jones (1819-1887) and engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry (1836-1918) over a period of eight years, it was the largest and most advanced bascule bridge ever completed when it opened in 1894, requiring 11,000 tons of steel and involving more than 400 construction workers. This impressive feat of engineering helped sustain the growing commercial activity at the docks and warehouses in East London, and the sudden influx of daily commuters brought in from the newly built London Bridge station. Still in full use today, the bridge is lifted an average of 850 times a year. This Victorian masterpiece remains a highly important crossing on the River Thames, as well as being one of London's defining landmarks. This compelling album of photographs by Harry Cory Wright allows us to experience the awe-inspiring structure of Tower Bridge in exquisite detail, from the intricate machinery and original mechanisms inside the control rooms and secret corridors, to the great cavernous space within the bascule chamber. It includes an interview with Senior Technical Officer Glen Ellis, who shares his own daily experience of lifting the bridge, evoking an incredibly vivid sense of `being there'.

Harewood House is one of the greatest country houses in Britain. Situated in the heart of Yorkshire, the house was commissioned in the 18th century by Edwin Lascelles, 1st Earl of Harewood.

Exquisitely furnished, Harewood was Thomas Chippendale's largest single commission. Harewood displays an extraordinary collection of Renaissance masterpieces alongside fine works of 20th-century art, and was the first country house in England to have a designated space for contemporary art. All Saints' Church, on the Harewood Estate, contains one of the most magnificent collections of late medieval alabaster tombs in Britain. This exquisite album of photographs by Harry Cory Wright allows us to experience Harewood as if for the first time. With an introduction by David Lascelles, 8th Earl of Harewood, who shares with us his own experience of living in such a remarkable house, this book evokes an incredibly vivid sense of place.

Royal Opera House (Paperback): Harry Cory-Wright Royal Opera House (Paperback)
Harry Cory-Wright; Introduction by Alex Beard CBE
R385 R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Save R77 (20%) Out of stock

The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, presents some of the most accomplished ballet and opera artists in productions of world-renowned quality and remarkable scale. There have been three theatres on the site. The original theatre opened in December 1732 and served initially as a playhouse. The first ballet was performed there in 1734, and the first opera (by Handel, who wrote many operas and oratorios for Covent Garden) later in the same year. The present building - the third on the Covent Garden site following two disastrous fires - opened in 1858 and has been known as the Royal Opera House since 1892. The Covent Garden complex was extensively transformed in several phases during the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It is the home of The Royal Opera, The Royal Ballet and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Harry Cory Wright's photographs explore every aspect of the Royal Opera House, from the red-and-gold auditorium and the rehearsal spaces of The Royal Ballet to the behind-the-scenes workshops where props, wigs, costumes, weapons and sets are created on site with extraordinary skill.
