The inside story of a national icon 'The giant coat-hanger' took 1300 men eight years to build. They used six million rivets and 53 000 tonnes of steel. John Nicholson tells the story step by step, in fascinating detail: the vision, the problems, the solutions, the suspense (would the two halves actually meet?), the risks, the celebrations. Once you've read this book, you'll never see that soaring arch, that vast maze of steel, the same way again.
