Brunel in London by John Christopher
A great insight into Isambard’s projects in London from the Thames Tunnel to the Great Eastern
John Christopher puts the case that it was London, not Bristol, that was the most important centre of Brunel’s activities. It was here that he lived, worked and died.
The city is dotted with examples of his works, some obvious and some less so, from the subaquatic Thames Tunnel between Wapping to Rotherhithe where he cut his engineering teeth and was almost killed in a sudden deluge, to the Hungerford suspension bridge between Charing Cross and many other examples.
