EDITORS COMMENTS
September 1859: SS Great Eastern, a colossal iron steamship, makes its way down the River Thames towards the English Channel, overcoming one of the greatest challenges at Blackwall. This illustration captures the moment of triumph as the powerful towing-tugs assist the vessel in navigating the narrow waterway, a feat that was considered a major achievement during the 1850s. Designed by the renowned engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his sons, the SS Great Eastern was the largest ship of its time, with a length of 322 meters and a tonnage of over 10,000 tons. The vessel was built to carry both passengers and cargo across the Atlantic, revolutionizing transatlantic travel. Brunel's innovative design included an iron hull, a central locomotive engine, and a unique method of launching the ship by rolling it down a slipway. This image, taken during the SS Great Eastern's maiden voyage, is a testament to the engineering prowess of the 19th century and the determination of those involved in bringing this marvel of technology to life.
