London Bridge

There has been a London Bridge for more than 2000 years. Each with stories and myths surrounding it.
The current one opened in 1973. To ensure the safety of the more than 1 million people who cross it each day it has been heated so ice will never form.

Interesting! «Louis» didn't know the current bridge is heated. Good idea!

This is really a nice image!

I didn't know the bridge was heated either. But I do remember when Arizona got the old London Bridge in the early 70's. It still stands at Lake Havasu, but if memory serves me, you can only cross it on foot.

I love the lighting in the photo. Such a lovely scene.

I knew the song but didn't really think that there was an actual London Bridge! Did you take this photo from a boat? The view of the bridge is beautiful :)
