Model of Tower Bridge created from single toothpick

Steven J Backman, who has been creating toothpick art for over 40 years, made the model which is less than two inches long and 1/8 inch wide.

"The miniature replica I created of Tower Bridge took several days to make but it was a labour of love," said Steven.

As far as I know, it is the world's smallest toothpick replica of Tower Bridge.

"I have always been fascinated by the rich history of London and its amazing architecture.

"I wanted to make something memorable to express my appreciation for this great city."
