Title: Isambard Kingdom Brunel at Millwall during the building of the Great Eastern.
Description: Brunel stands in front of the giant iron chains of the 'Great Eastern' during her construction at Millwall. Brunel was one of the greatest, most innovative and self-publicising engineers of the 19th century. He was responsible for many large engineering projects including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Paddington Station and the Great Western Railway, with its many bridges, tunnels and viaducts. He also constructed three very important ships: the 'Great Britain', the 'Great Western', and the vast 'Great Eastern'.
