Arizona's Piece Of London



Arizona's Piece Of London

London Bridge - demolished and resurrected in the USA.

Location: London Bridge, SE1

Description: Who'd have thought it possible...but between 1968 and 1971 London Bridge was demolished and the remains of this glorious construction weren't used for road building...No!

In fact it was sold for 1 million pounds and resurrected at Lake Havusu City theme park in Arizona, USA. Why, well, London can do anything!
