Notes:

The old London Bridge shown in this wonderfully emotive engraving was lined with houses all along, a remarkably unsafe construction that did not survive.

The bridge [...] survives in its picturesque masses of houses, arches, and piers – an irregular street across a broad and rapid stream – in a hundred old drawings. [...] when the tournaments and processions enlivened the flood; and the state barges of the great, and the boats bearing prisoners to the Tower, streamed through its many narrow arches; and the windows and parapets were alive with citizens, it must have made a fine picture... (p. 14)

The extract is taken from the original text of London: a pilgrimage, but I do not have a copy of the book itself.
