EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the awe-inspiring sight of "The Great Eastern" steamship in action on July 23rd, 1865. Taken from William Howard Russell's renowned book "The Atlantic Telegraph" this color lithograph by Robert Dudley showcases the monumental achievement of laying a transatlantic cable. Designed and constructed by the brilliant Isambard Kingdom Brunel, The Great Eastern was an engineering marvel of its time. This colossal vessel held an astonishing 2600 miles of cable, intended to create a continuous line connecting Ireland to Newfoundland. After two failed attempts in 1857-58, this successful endeavor marked a significant milestone in global communication and industrial development. Accompanied by escort ships such as Terrible, Sphinx, Hawk, and Caroline, The Great Eastern embarked on its historic journey across the Atlantic Ocean. Onboard were journalist William Howard Russell from London Times and artist Robert Dudley himself. As we gaze upon this image from the Private Collection of The Stapleton Collection, we are transported back to that momentous day when human ingenuity triumphed over vast distances. Amidst mythical creatures depicted alongside it - sphinxes and other fantastic beasts - The Great Eastern symbolizes both Victorian engineering prowess and mankind's insatiable quest for progress. Let us admire this remarkable photograph print not only for its artistic beauty but also for commemorating an extraordinary feat that forever transformed telecommunications history.
