London Bridge is Sold

Is the Day London Bridge, which Sold for $2,460,00 to American Oil Tycoon Robert P McCulloch

was rebuilt and opened to the public in 1971. The story of the purchase goes back to 18th April 1968. The old bridge was in need of urgent repair and instead of a major repair operation the decision was made to rebuild the bridge completely. The incredible deal came about to purchase the bridge, have it dismantled brick by brick and shipped to the USA was, as Mr. P.McCulloch candidly admitted to the New York Times in October 1971

the bridge was brought for one reason – to bring tourists, and their money, to a town that badly needs both.
