Great Railway Eras

Brunel - A railtour of his achievements

by Vic Mitchell

More than 50 books have appeared on Brunel, both technical and biographical, or both. This is the first album to look solely at his railway legacy, although many of the views are of structures now lost. They are in journey order from London and include many familiar panoramas, together with less well known locations, where work was carried out in Brunel's style by his subordinates, occasionally posthumously. There are over 150 illustrations herein.
