ACUDB - Pont de la Concorde

The taking - and subsequent destruction - of the Bastille would provide an unexpected and fortuitous supply of stone at minimum cost: The stones from the ancient fortress were reused to build this bridge, which spanned from the Palais Bourbon to the Place de la Revolution (and its guillotine). The bridge was completed in 1791 and was named Pont de la Révolution, later to be called Pont de la Concorde.
