The first underwater tunnel (Thames), the longest suspension bridge (Clifton), the greatest railway system (Great Western), the fastest locomotive, the biggest war ship, the first transatlantic steamboat. These are the works of Isambard KingdomMoreThe first underwater tunnel (Thames), the longest suspension bridge (Clifton), the greatest railway system (Great Western), the fastest locomotive, the biggest war ship, the first transatlantic steamboat.

These are the works of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Victorian engineer extraordinaire and undoubtedly the last engineering giant of the Industrial Revolution. The inventions of Brunel and other pioneering engineers of the time ensured that Britain was the hub of the industrial world. As well as Brunel, there were other pioneering engineers of the time including Stevenson who managed to float a railway across a bog and Telford who, with no formal training, went on to build some of the finest canals and bridges in the country.

This is a wonderful illustrated record of some of the greatest engineering feats of the Industrial Revolution and will include blueprints, engravings, letters and diary extracts.
