This is the c. 1824 London Bridge, which was discovered to be sinking into the Thames in 1968, due to the modern traffic load. The bridge was sold to Robert McCulloch for $2,460,000 (US), and shipped half way around the world in blocks, to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
The bridge was rebuilt under the supervision of Nottingham civil engineer Robert Beresford. To withstand modern traffic, the rebuilt bridge has a steel reinforced concrete core. The grand opening of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu was October 10, 1971.
