These Bridges

by Phoebe Éclair-Powell

When the Thames bursts its banks and submerges London, the north and the south of the city become separated. Myths abound about ‘the other side’ – is it really better?

The drowned commuters of the Circle Line conjure memories of the past. These Bridges by Phoebe Éclair-Powell looks at a fearful future and seeks to show that if we stick together, we may just survive it all.
