The storming of the Bastille in 1789 and the fortress' subsequent destruction provided an unexpected and fortunate supply of stone at a minimum cost. The stones were recycled to build a new bridge, which spanned from the Palais Bourbon to the Place de la Révolution. Completed in 1791, the bridge was named Pont de la Révolution, later changing name to Pont de la Concorde.
