This is so far the biggest carp ever caught from the Thames. 50lb12oz. It really is a unique fish, possible the most special fish caught in the UK ever. Not the biggest but a really amazing beast. It shows the Thames really is a mysterious river. This fish will probably never be seen again
Surely there was no colour photography in 1888?

During the 80's miners strike loads of pit workers were in London and scores jumped off that bridge again and again. Not that risky depending on the tides.
How did you know about this TopCat ? Were you there, any photos of this. Can't imagine what that would have looked like.
Must have caused a right old rumpus!?
I was there. Big rally on the south bank and hordes of pit workers pissed up in the sunshine jumping off the bridge.
