Summary

Summary

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 20 generations of Londoners. This remarkable structure--with its drawbridge, nineteen arches, and nineteen piers--stood majestic through the centuries and was an inspiration to many who saw 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, occupying a unique place in London's heritage.
