An outline view in ink of part of Bath in Somerset, with Pulteney Bridge. The bridge was designed by Robert Adam and built between 1769 and 1774. It is built in the Palladian style and has an Italian influence (some similarities to the Rialto Bridge in Venice). Today the bridge is heavily built on with shops and toll houses which extend across both sides. Pedestrians crossing the bridge can no longer see the River Avon and have no clue it is a bridge.
