world pictures The United Kingdom: Ironbridge

We'll go take a look. We have to pass the traffic circle that once funneled traffic onto the bridge. The town of Ironbridge has about 2,500 people today, but in 1840 it had over 4,000. One resident, Charles Hulbert, wrote in 1837 that the town had a "...weekly market, the Post Office, the Printing Office, principal inns, Drapery, Grocery and Ironmongery, Watch Making, Cabinet Making, Timber and Boat Building establishments; Subscription Library, Subscription Dispensary, Branch Bank, Subscription Baths, Gentlemen of the Legal and Medical professions, Ladies Boarding School, etc." (Quoted by W. Grant Muter, The Buildings of an Industrial Community: Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge, 1979, p. 8.)
