£2.30

A5 greeting card with envelope. The second major flood in the Thames Tunnel in which Isambard Kingdom Brunel nearly lost his life.


A humorous depiction of a flood in the Thames Tunnel, taken from Finish to Life in London by Pierce Egan 1829. The press enjoyed lampooning the Tunnel even when there was disaster and loss of life!
