Tower Bridge vs London Bridge

Which one is the more famous bridge across the Thames in London? Tower Bridge is London iconic landmark, no doubt about that, and who doesn't know the nursery rhyme "London Bridge is falling down"?

Before I visited London, I had seen pictures of Tower Bridge but not those of London Bridge; I had heard of London Bridge but not Tower Bridge. When I sang "London Bridge is falling down", images of Tower Bridge came into my mind. I was obviously wrong but there was no Wikipedia then!

Recently, I revisited the Tower Bridge and the modern version of London Bridge, both the famous bridges of London.
