Great Eastern under construction AL0327_033_01

Millwall, London. Isambard Kingdom Brunel'??s steamship Great Eastern, built between 1854 and 1858, was by far the largest ship of her time with a gross tonnage of 18, 915. Designed to carry up to 4, 000 passengers between England, the Far East and Australia without refuelling, Great Eastern was the first ship to have a double-skinned hull. The construction of the vessel at Millwall attracted huge public interest, and it was famously photographed by Robert Howlett as well as by Joseph Cundall. Despite acute financial difficulties, and failed launches in November 1857, Great Eastern was eventually launched in January 1858. Joseph Cundall (1818-??95) albumen print from May 1855

WARING AND GILLOW FACTORY, White City, Hammersmith, London. A large crowd of people gathered outside the premises of Waring and Gillow in White City, converted for use as a munitions factory during the Great War. The furniture manufacturers, Waring and Gillow were formed in 1897 by the merger of Gillow of Lancaster and Waring of Liverpool. They established a reputation for supplying high quality furniture to some of the richest families in the country. During the First World War, Waring & Gillow (who commissioned this photograph) began producing goods for the war effort. Their factory at White City, made tents for the military. The company also manufactured ammunition belts for use with machine guns, nosebags for horses and protective clothing for use during gas attacks. Photographed by Bedford Lemere & Co. in August 1916
