The two RV Gypsies
at London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona
July 27, 2012

clipart of a history bookLondon Bridge is a bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona that is the reconstruction of 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 from the city of London. McCulloch had exterior 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.

It is a popular rumor that the bridge was bought in the belief that it was London's more recognizable Tower Bridge, but this was denied by McCulloch himself.

The bridge's relocation was the basis of a 1985 made-for-TV movie 'Bridge Across Time' also known as 'Arizona Ripper' or 'Terror at London Bridge'. In the film, a series of murders in Lake Havasu City is attributed to the spirit of Jack The Ripper, whose soul is transported to the U.S. in one of the bricks of the bridge.
