The Selling of London Bridge

The Selling of London Bridge

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In 1831 John Rennie’s new London Bridge opened. By the 1960s the bridge was sinking, and it was decided the best solution was building a new bridge.

In 1968 Rennie's London Bridge was sold at auction and moved to Arizona. This talk explores this remarkable story.
