View of from the river of the Pultney Bridge in Bath, showing a weir in the river. It was designed by Robert Adam and built between 1769 and 1774. Its Palladian style shows a distinct contemporary Italian influence (with some marked similarities to the Rialto Bridge in Venice). Today, the bridge is lined with shops, and the river cannot be seen from it. Most pedestrians crossing the bridge have no clue it is a bridge. The artist and engraver is Thomas Malton Yr. (1748-1804), and architectural draughtsman, who won gold and silver medals for architecture at the RA Schools and moved to Bath in 1780.
