For over 600 years Old London Bridge represented the pulsating heart of London. The scene of commerce and battle, romance and ceremony, it remained a vibrant focal point for twenty generations of Londoners; life and death flowed over and under it. This remarkable structure-with its drawbridge, nineteen arches and nineteen piers-stood majestic through the centuries and was an inspiration to many who saw or dwelt on it.
This is the story of the Bridge,its inhabitants and its extraordinary evolution-and of how it came to live on in affectionate folk memory and occupy a unique place in London's glorious heritage. 344 pgs.

London Bridge has had almost as many iterations as the Great Wall of China. The famous one appears to be the "Old London Bridge" 1176-1832 (the Lake Havasu version is the later one). Many old diagrams, but it could use a good map for those of us who don't know early London geography.
