Graeme on
Brunel was an amazing engineer in Victorian England whose projects ranged far and wide - from the unique design and construction of the Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash in England; the advocate and builder of the 7 foot broad-gauge Great Western Railway where trains in the 1840s - 50s reached the then amazing speeds of up to 60mph; to the amazing steamship 'Great Eastern'. L.T.C.Rolt's biography of Brunel has been around for years, but is still a tremendous read. Highly recommended.
