Good Day, Mr Bazalgette. We need you to design a new sewer system for London.
Oh, it seems that the project would be too expensive. Lets postpone it
One the really hot summer of 1858, 'The Great Stink' happened
The entirety of London smelled worse than usual. The source of the stink was the River Thames.
Just give Joseph Bazalgette the 3 million pounds to begin the construction of the sewers already!! The stench is getting really unbearable!
Using a total of around 318 million bricks I built the 134 km long sewer system. I believe this sewer would remove 1.9 billion litres of sewage material per day!
After the construction of my sewer system, there have been no reports of Cholera cases in London. In fact, My success caused other cities to build their own sewers too!
