Brunel’s Three Ships – Jim Cannon

17 January @ 8:15 PM 10:00 PM GMT

Doors Open 7:30pm


Isambard Kingdom Brunel was arguably one of the greatest engineers of the 19th century. He built railways, bridges, docks and three ships that pushed the boundaries of marine construction, including the Great Eastern. It was the largest ship in the world at the time and laid the first transatlantic cable.

From an early age, Jim has been fascinated by Brunel. He will tell us about the history of Brunel’s three most famous ships. Jim is a GXSA member but lives in Australia during the English winter, so he will speak via Zoom.
