The photograph shows the landmark sculpture on the front of Riverbank House. It’s called The Swan Upper and was created by Edward Bainbridge Copnall assisted by José de Alberdi.
Copnall (19031973) was president of the Royal British Society of Sculptors (196166) and known for his accomplished, striking and controversial work. The Swan Upper is made of fibreglass and is just over four and a half metres high.
Swan Upping is an annual census of the swan population of the Thames - a tradition that dates from the twelfth century (when they were eaten at banquets). Since then, the monarch has claimed ownership of all mute swans.
