Museum Book: The Brunels’ Tunnel
“So they built a shopping arcade under the Thames and in 1852 an underwater fair, where by the light of Boggett’s patent Prismatic Reflectors visitors could enjoy watching Mr. Green the celebrated Bottle Pantomimic Equilibrist or dance to music of the Montreal Minstrels in an underground Ballroom.”– MICHAEL PALIN in his foreword
The Museum’s beautifully produced book tells the fascinating story of the cargo tunnel’s construction and survival as banquet hall, shopping arcade, fairground and underground railway line. Lavishly illustrated, 84 pages. A treat for all those interested in the Brunels and the history of London.
