On this day: London Bridge Opened
Friday, 1st August 2014 by Ian Brown
Want to buy a bridge? On August 1, 1831, in London, the “new” London Bridge opened with a ceremony attended by the King and Queen. In the late 1960s it was sold to one Robert McCulloch who moved the entire 5-arch structure stone-by-stone to Arizona, where he was building a new resort. McCulloch had to regularly deny the rumour that he believed he was buying the more iconic Tower Bridge. Photosphere by Calvin Jones.
