A Blow-up over London Bridge





Machinery, Display

    The article reports on a 'sort of advertisement' among the 'King's pamphlets in the British Museum', offering to try an experiment with the intention of safely blowing a boat over London Bridge using an 'engine'. The author does not know if the feat was carried out, but, if so, it 'seems to give place to none of modern days'.
