It also answers crucial questions such as why do London's bikers meet on Chelsea Bridge, who was assassinated on Waterloo and how a hairdresser save Hammersmith and a poet the Albert Bridge. Illustrated with stunning photographs of each bridge by a selection of London based photographers, Cross River Traffic is a delightfully digressive and informative history. £7.95
