Over the last few years, GWRPG Member Edward Boxell has researched long and hard, far and wide, to produce a very informative photographic display.
This was for the 200th Anniversary of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and was displayed at Ealing Central Library and the Kew Bridge Steam Museum in London, together with an airing at our own site, Southall Railway Centre.
This display features the life and architectural history bestowed on Britain during his lifetime, the most well known and prominent being the Clifton Suspension Bridge over the Avon River at Bristol. It follows through to the use of the name of Brunel on monuments, road signs, Public Houses, to name but a few.
Obviously Brunel, being a designer of great architectural standing has left many a locomotive, tunnel, bridge and the Steamship ‘Great Britain’ for the general public and visitors to admire.
This complete informative exhibition is available for any organisation to hire from the GWR Preservation Group and any interested groups, societies, or individuals should contact us on the email address as shown on our contact page. We wait to hear from you.
