STEALING A BRIDGE; STEALING A FERRIS WHEEL.

STEALING A BRIDGE; STEALING A FERRIS WHEEL. I posted here about the thefts of a building and of a gold bathtub. Nick, who discussed the gold bathtub in one of his standup routines, called my attention to this article about the theft of a bridge in New Castle, Pennsylvania.

Apparently I have never mentioned that Dashiell Hammett, who worked as a Pinkerton detective before writing THE MALTESE FALCON, claimed to have known a man who stole a ferris wheel.
