Description

Detail showing the strap and inscription on the attache case of Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859), English inventor and civil engineer, showing that he was a member of the Atheneum Club in London. On leaving school in 1822 he worked alongside his father Marc Isambard Brunel (1769-1849) on the construction of the Thames Tunnel. As chief engineer of the Great Western Railway (1833-1858), he designed many bridges and viaducts, including the Royal Albert Bridge in Cornwall and the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. The famous steamships 'Great Western', the 'Great Britain' and the 'Great Eastern' were also conceived by him.
