London Bridge not in London anymore but in Arizona
The London Bridge built in 1831 was moved from London"s Thames River brick by marked brick in 1968 and placed in dry land in Arizona .The reconstruction was finished in 1971 and filled with water underneath. The vintage lamps on the London Bridge were made from the melted down cannons of Napoleon Bonaparte's army.Hence Arizona now has all the fun.Thank you Robert McColloch for your brainstorm and foresight and imagination.
