London Bridge is a box girder bridge built from concrete and steel, connecting the City of London and Southwark, in central London. It is not to be confused with Tower Bridge! London Bridge was opened to traffic in 1973, being then only 47 years old. It was taken down and rebuilt from concrete and steel, replacing a 19th century stone arched bridge, which in turn succeeded a 600-year-old stone-built structure. The craziest story with the London Bridge is that it was sold to the USA in 1986!
