Sewage from over two million Londoners was carried to and fro by the tides. The Times called the crisis The Great Stink. Parliament had to act - drastic measures were required to clean the Thames and to improve Londons primitive system of sanitation. The engineer entrusted by Parliament with this enormous task was Sir Joseph Bazalgette, and this book is an account of his life and work.
