32 Londoners - Joseph Bazalgette with Stephen Halliday
Stephen Halliday on JOSEPH BAZALGETTE - Engineer, b.1819, Enfield
On May the 1st 2014 the EDF Energy London Eye hosted a unique event where each of its 32 capsules was given over to a talk by a well-known authority on a famous Londoner. To commemorate the occasion, this podcast series has been made of all of the talks.
Stephen Halliday's The Great Filth, "is the latest of a recent spate of books that take dirt and disease as a starting point for the social history of the Victorian city", which makes him a truly knowledgeable person to speak about London's sewage system designer and engineer, Joseph Bazalgette.
