Old London Bridge in 1745 by Joseph Josiah Dodd. Bridge construction was  finished in 1209, being 8metres wide & supported by 19 arches. Over time, London Bridge became increasingly crowded & unsafe with fire being the most common hazard. By the 1500s the buildings on the bridge reached up to seven stories high & hung over the river. By the 1700s, common sense and health and safety took control. Between 1758 and 1762, all of the buildings on the bridge were demolished.
