The title of this map runs along the top of the plan, which shows the new bridge at Blackfriars as "Pitt's Bridge". Designed by Robert Mylne, this third bridge spanning the Thames was built between 1760 and 69. The nine semi-elliptical Portland stone arches were replaced in a hundred years later by the present structure of five wrought-iron arches faced with cast-iron, and a granite pier designed by Cubitt and Carr.
