Fascinating depiction of Old London Bridge...complete with heads on spikes on the southern gatehouse.
A remarkable 393 year old panorama of London which reveals how the city looked before the great fire destroyed large parts of it has sold at auction for £106,000.
The 7ft panorama, taken from the South Bank, has the old St Paul's Cathedral and London Bridge, which were rebuilt following the blaze, as central features.
Remarkably, its creator, the Dutch engraver and cartographer Claes Jansz Visscher, never visited London, so the panorama required some imagination - the Tower of London boasts onion-styled domes.
It is one of only two known copies to exist, with the other one residing in the Folger Library in Washington DC, United States.
