"Sun, Steal & Spray" a new book on the history of the Victoria Falls Bridge

This month sees publication of a new book on the Victoria Falls Bridge. Entitled ‘Sun, Steal & Spray’, and written by our own man on ground in Victoria Falls, Peter Roberts, the book is a thorough history of the planning and construction of the bridge and is well illustrated will photographs from the period. The book will be available for sale from the Bridge Visitor Centre, located on the Zambian side of the bridge, behind the viewing platform and restaurant, as well as many other outlets in town. Or you can order your copy through us. Contact us

The book has taken over nine months of research, from the British Library, London, to the Bulawayo Railway Museum, and was sponsored by the Victoria Falls Bridge Company who have recently launched their historical Bridge Tours, a specialised presentation and exploration of the bridge.
