|WHY IS THE LONDON BRIDGE IN ARIZONA?
London Bridge is a bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. It is the 1831 London Bridge that spanned the River Thames in London, England until it was
dismantled in 1967. The Arizona bridge is a reinforced concrete structure clad in the original masonry of the 1830s bridge, that was bought by Robert
P. McCulloch (Of the Chainsaw Fame) from the City of London. McCulloch had the granite blocks from the original bridge numbered and transported
to America, to construct the present bridge in Lake Havasu City, a planned community he established in 1964 on the shore of Lake Havasu. The bridge
was completed in 1971 (along with a canal), and links an island in the lake with the main part of Lake Havasu City.
