24 January 2017 • Looking east from the southbound platform of Blackfriars Station. Ever since the new station was built passengers have been treated to one of the finest views on the Thames. The morning was foggy and so Canary Wharf Tower is seen through the mist as it stands tall, surrounded by the other office blocks on the Isle of Dogs. They are so large that it is not immediately obvious that they are about two miles from Blackfriars Station. In the foreground is the Millennium Bridge with Cannon Street Railway Bridge behind it and the twin towers of the old Victorian Cannon Street Station on the left. Part of Tower Bridge can be seen in the distance.
