London Bridge Reborn

imageJim: In 1968 the London Bridge, opened in 1831, was torn down to make way for a new version. The 19th century bridge was sold to a property developer and moved to Lake Havasau, Arizona, where it was used to clad a steel bridge, built to look like the 19th century London Bridge.

When asked Larra if she’d like to see it, she told me about seeing it when she was a teenager, shortly before it was torn down.

We arrived at the Lake Havasau London Bridge shortly after sunset. After a few photos, we found a hotel and came back in the morning. It was fun to hear Larra’s stories about going to London and seeing the bridge, and the differences she saw between the Lake Havasau reincarnation and the original.

imageWe also got a kick out of the old British phone booth, where I placed a cell phone call to friends in Hawaii, telling them about the Hawaiian Ice booth in Lake Havasau, Arizona, in the shadow of the London Bridge.

They, of course, thought I was out of my mind. These photos are my evidence that I’m not. Yet. LOL

Now on to the Grand Canyon!
