Cross River Traffic: A History of Londonís Bridges
Chris Roberts (au)
When the Romans founded Londinium, the only way to cross from the north to the south bank of the Thames involved taking a boat or getting your feet wet. Later they built a bridge to reach their new city near a spot that for centuries was the site of the only London bridge. Now central London has 17 points where the Thames can be strolled over, ranging from the fantastic Tower Bridge to the grimly functional Wandsworth. This book tells the history of the current crossings & their predecessors, how & why they were built & incidents that have occurred on them, from ghost stories to terrorist plots, sexual antics to suicides. It explores why the crossings are situated where they are & their effects on the communities they link. Stunning photos!
