Greeting Card / Brunel and Chains


A5 greeting card with envelope. Isambard Kingdom Brunel from a photograph by Robert Howlett dated 1857

In this iconic photograph Brunel stands in front of the Great Eastern’s huge launching chains. He wears his iconic top hat and has the perpetual cigar between his teeth. He looks relaxed, but this most troublesome project must have meant that he was anything but!
