Indian Smoothbore .656 in musket, Pattern 1858

Indian Smoothbore .656 in musket, Pattern 1858, lock dated 1856.Converted from a Pattern 1853 Enfield rifle-musket in India 1858 (c), this exceptionally rare item was part of an original issue of 10, 000 weapons sold by the British Government to the East Indian Company in 1856. These weapons were a contributory cause of the Indian Mutiny because of the belief that animal fat had been incorporated in the grease for the cartridges. After the Mutiny, most Indian troops were issued with smooth-bore muskets which at the same time were to look similar to Enfield rifles. In this case the original rifling was bored out and a locally-made ramrod fitted. Also, a simple fixed backsight replaced the graduated rear sight of the Enfield.Now in poor condition, it is identified by the faint stamp on the butt of the EIC lion rampant regardment and holding the crown. In addition the initials 'WD' (War Department) over the broad arrow combined with 'I' (India) and the date 1856 are present. The weapon was subsequently bored smooth and re-sighted to conform with the pattern 1858-1859 .656in muskets for Native Infantry. Date: 1858

Demolition of London Bridge, London

Demolition of the 19th century London Bridge, which opened in 1831. The bridge was dismantled and sold to an American entrepreneur, Robert P McCulloch of McCulloch Oil, for US $2, 460, 000. Each piece was numbered to aid reassembly. It was reconstructed at Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and re-dedicated in 1971. It now spans the Bridgewater Channel canal leading from Lake Havasu to Thomson Bay, and forms the centrepiece of a theme park in English style, complete with a Tudor period shopping mall. The Bridge has become Arizona's second-biggest tourist attraction, after the Grand Canyon. Date: 1967
