London Bridge to-day, London's great South-East Artery

London Bridge to-day, London's great South-East Artery

This photograph of London Bridge, taken from the Southwark side, reminds us of a very famous feature of Old London-the stone bridge with houses built upon it that survived every change made between the end of the twelfth century and the middle of the eighteenth. The last of the houses were removed between 1755 and 1762, and the central arches were reconstructed; but many more changes have been made since then in order to cope with the ever-increasing traffic. The great building at the City end is Adelaide House.
