Longstanding member Edward Boxell has, over the last few years, assembled information about this very historical gentleman, he of tall hat and a cigar smoker.
Edward has compiled many display panels suitable for all ages to view, both pictorial and informative in every way. Brunel, born in 1806 and died aged 53, was a mechanical and civil engineer responsible for significant inventions and structures i.e. bridges, viaducts and tunnels and indeed the Steamship, S.S. Great Britain which lies at Bristol dockyard.
Further interesting artefacts can be seen at the STEAM museum in Swindon.
This display will be in place at Ealing Library during the full month of July this year and Edward will be in attendance as much as he is able to.
