Excellent.
On a side note, you would be surprised how many travel agents on this side of the pond describe a visit to London Bridge, and show a picture of Tower Bridge!.

Might of paid some attention to history class if this guy was the teacher.

Why do they gotta skip over all the cool gory details of history and just boil it down to stale boring meaningless stats?

Typical history book:

10: X went to war with Y during Z year
X killed Z men on Y side.
Y killed Z men on X side.
X defeated and/or was defeated by Y
Goto 10

Great post, John.

My kids went on a tour there. I'll ask them tomorrow if they had this guy.

There's a series of books by Terry Deary called Horrible Histories that have been a boon for children recently. I don't know if they crossed the water. This is an example :
