description

Isambard Kingdom Brunel's SS Great Britain was a world first when she was launched at Bristol in 1843. This uniquely successful passenger ship design brought together the leading technologies of the day (screw propeller, iron hull and 1,000hp steam engine) to transform world travel. She was a successful ship and continued sailing until 1886, travelling 32 times around the world and nearly one million miles at sea. Great Britain was finally abandoned in the Falkland Islands in 1937 but in 1970 an ambitious salvage effort brought her home to Bristol, where today she is conserved.

Published in association with the SS Great Britain Trust. Insights into the design, construction, operation, maintenance and conservation of the most famous passenger ship survivor of the Victorian age. Archive illustrations from the SS Great Britain Trust. Specially commissioned photographs of the ship's anatomy. Internationally acclaimed author.
