The Great Stink of London: Sir Joseph Bazalgette and the Cleansing of the Victorian Metropolis - Stephen Halliday, Adam Hart-Davis I've always been fascinated by anything concerning the history of London, including the very workings of the infrastructure. I already knew Joseph Bazalgette's story and was amazed at the task he had before him. This book added to my knowledge by giving details such as what he was up against with local authorities and the typical "not in my backyard" camp. It may be too much information for some people's taste, but people who are fascinated by the things that most take for granted- this will give you a fix.
