Description

Lithograph by G Barnard showing a view of a freight transfer depot on the proposed Great Western Railway (GWR). The image depicts the movement of freight from canal to rail and canal boats to railway waggons. Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859) 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.
