So did they ever rebuild the London Bridge?

Recommended Posts

There have been quite a few London Bridges in roughly the same spot over the Thames. Early versions were constructed of wood and therefore prone to fires. Apparently in the early days superstition caused people to do all sorts of crazy things to protect the bridge, including human sacrifice - hence the portion of the "London Bridge is Falling Down" nursery rhyme that references "my fair lady".

Mike is English, just not the Queens variety! In reality, he is a Peach! A Georgia Peach who obviously knows some history, and made up one hell of a glovebox!

Thanks again MikeW!
