2011 Tower Bridge in London

Did you know:

Even though the Tower Bridge has been an iconic symbol of London since the latter part of the 19th century, it suffers from a case of mistaken identity. It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as London Bridge, which is actually the next bridge upstream. There is also a distant American cousin Tower Bridge in Sacarmento, California.

According to popular urban legend, in 1968 Robert McCulloch, who purchased the old London Bridge and shipped it to Arizona, believed that he was in fact buying Tower Bridge. This was denied by McCulloch himself and debunked by Ivan Luckin, the seller of the bridge.

In 2006, US singer Fergie released her single London Bridge, but the single sleeve and video depicted her standing in front of Tower Bridge.*

Following the Queen's marriage in 1840, her husband, Prince Albert, concerned himself with a reorganisation of the household offices and staff, and the problems were all rectified by the close of the year.*
