Tower Bridge jams in summer heat

Tower Bridge, London, jams when the metal expands in the summer heat on 2 July 1968. The bridge is closed for two hours while firefighters cool it down with their hoses. Seen here are men on board the Firebrace, training their hoses upwards towards the underside of the partially open bridge
