Amazing Picture of The Commonwealth Avenue Bridge, Australia

One great thing about technology is that it makes the impossible possible just like this awesome bridge you are viewing.

'The Commonwealth Avenue Bridge was constructed in 1928 and crosses Lake Burley Griffin. Between the spans on the southern side are two granite stones from the 1817 Waterloo Bridge across the River Thames in London. These were presented to Australia after the 1817 bridge was demolished in the 1940s and replaced by a modern structure. A plaque reads, in part, Stones such as these from the bridge were presented to Australia and other parts of the British world to further historic links in the British Commonwealth of Nations.' [Wikipedia]   (1432).
