London Bridge and its Houses, c. 1209-1761 by Dorian Gerhold

Something to look forward to next month.  Old London Bridge lined with houses from end to end is one of the best-known images of London in the past, but little has previously been known about the houses themselves and the people who lived and worked in them. This book uses new evidence that enables for the first time a description of the houses and their occupants, and includes specially-drawn reconstructions incorporating the new understanding of the bridge and its houses.
