Item Literature

Conceived in 1851 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, construction of the Great Eastern started in 1854 at John Scott-Russell’s ship building yard on the Isle of Dogs in London. Her maiden voyage did not take place until the 31st January 1859. The idea behind the Great Eastern was that she could steam virtually around the world without refuelling. The intention was that this would give the Great Eastern the commercial edge over the lucrative immigrant trade to India and Australia.
