We need your help to raise £18, 500 to bring these incredible illustrations out of storage and display them at the Brunel Museum.
Buried in a family album for almost two hundred years, these drawings have changed the shape of our cities and the lives of city dwellers. Yet they have never been on display before. Since the watercolours were acquired by the Brunel Museum in 2017, they have been in storage. The Museum is seeking to raise £18, 500 to purchase a bespoke, safe, archive-quality case to allow us to display these delicate objects onsite at the Brunel Museum.
To thank supporters of the campaign, the Museum have created a series of unique, one of a kind rewards for your donation. Donors can sponsor their very own watercolour or hold a party in the tunnel shaft itself.
The watercolours were acquired at auction by the Brunel Museum in 2017, thanks to the generosity of National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, V&A Purchase Grant Fund and Friends of the National Libraries.
