    It's a pity that the journalist got the name of the bridge wrong, it's Tower Bridge not London Bridge! Tower bridge has the towers and a middle section that lifts up, London Bridge is a plain arch bridge.

    You're right scumonkey, I heard that they thought they were buying Tower Bridge! London Bridge has had a couple of reincarnations since it was a timber bridge built by the Romans. The current one was opened to traffic in 1973. Remember the children's nursery rhyme 'London Bridge Is Falling Down' - if you look at the rhyme on youtube you'll see that many of the American ones feature the wrong bridge, i.e., Tower Bridge.
