Product description

Review

"As much a social history as the story of the bridge, this entertaining book is packed with facts but its light, sprightly tone makes bricks and mortar a source of human interest." (Sally Morris Daily Mail)

"[Elborough] is a charming, wry companion, who wears his considerable learning lightly." (Ian Sansom Guardian)

"Wonderfully detailed… A fitting testament to the folly and wonder of human endeavour." (Claire Looby Irish Times)

"Elborough’s book is a fascinating mix of social and architectural history, travelogue and pop culture, but it is his ability to bring to life the disparate and often eccentric characters involved in the story that stands out." (Ian Critchley Sunday Times)

"An entertaining cultural historian of the Bill Bryson school…very interesting, and crammed with historical trivia." (Helen Brown Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

A brilliantly entertaining look at just what happened when London Bridge was sold and shipped to America.
