Default London landmarks in 1888

hello everyone. I was just curious to know that, in 1888, what famous London landmarks were up at the time. I know that some significant ones (like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament/Clock Tower, St. Paul's Cathedral, and The Tower) were up while others (like Tower Bridge and, obviously, the London Eye) were not up yet. I was just wondering if anyone else here can help clarify for me what else was up at the time I may have missed and what definitely still needed to be completed. Like, Tate Britain? Shakespeare's Globe? Etc.

Oh, and how about Canary Wharf? HA ha...kidding. I know THAT was not up yet.
