Description

Lithograph by G Barnard showing a view of a viaduct on the proposed Great Western Railway (GWR). Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859), Wharncliffe Viaduct was the first contract let on the GWR. Brunel was appointed chief engineer of the GWR in March 1833, with the task of building a railway to link London and Bristol. The first section, opened in 1838, went from London to Taplow, Buckinghamshire, before finally reaching Bristol in 1841. Published by Hullmandel.
