Originally overlooking the Thames River in London, in 1967 the bridge was disassembled and relocated to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Very nice angle for the bridge.
My pleasure. Yes it's quite mind boggling the amount of work involved to do that! However it looks really great there.
Thanks, Richard! I looked at the link you sent, and it amazes me how much work went into making that bridge. Then to take it apart, catalog each stone, ship it and reassemble it here, and get it right. Just amazing!!!!
Great shot Bill. You might be interested to know that the granite stone for the bridge came from Dartmoor not far from me here in the UK. The original remote Victorian quarry, at Foggintor, near Merrivale and associated buildings and railway is now deserted and in ruins. However there are still huge dressed pieces of stone corbels on the moor that history relates was originally destined for use on this bridge until the order was cancelled. A fascinating area. You can see a shot I put up of near to this quarry at https://flii.by/file/nk94bq11wkc/
