First Atlantic Liner

Brunel's Great Western Steamship

Helen Doe

Isambard Kingdom Brunel's achievement in building the steamship Great Western has been overshadowed by the fame of later vessels Great Britain and Great Eastern, but the wooden-hulled steamer was, for a short time, the largest and fastest passenger vessel making transatlantic voyages. This book looks at the business and design problems that beset Brunel during the development of Great Western and uses contemporary diaries to examine what life on board was like for passengers and crew. Slightly off-mint.
