    In 1968 the world's largest antique went to America. But how do you transport a 130-year-old bridge 3000 miles? And why set it up in the waterless Arizona desert? This wry, compelling social history musters a colourful cast of Fleet Street shysters, Thames dockers, Disneyland designers and gun-toting sheriffs to tell the extraordinary tale of how London Bridge was sold to a US oil baron, and charts its curious afterlife in Lake Havasu.
