The Great Eastern Steam Ship.
The Great Eastern Steam Ship.
Eng.d & Pub.d by Ellis, 51 Jewin St. City, London. [n.d., c.1850].
Engraving. Sheet size: 310 x 395mm (12¼ x 15½").
The 'Great Eastern' steam ship was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and built by Scott Russell & Co.Ltd, London (screw engines by James Watt & Co.Ltd, Birmingham), five funnels, six masts, iron construction, paddle and screw propulsion and a speed of 12 knots. Work started on the ship, which at first was going to be called the Leviathan, in 1854. There were many problems in building the ship and in trying to launch it, and the ship, now renamed the Great Eastern, was not finally afloat until January 1858. She was cheered on her way by enormous crowds as she travelled down river towards the sea. The public impact of the launching of the 'Great Eastern' was enormous and the event was widely celebrated in the press. During sea trials on 9th September 1859 the Great Eastern's heaters exploded, killing six firemen and devestating the grand saloon. The explosion would have sunk a lesser ship, but the Great Eastern survived. Brunel's new construction methods, dividing the ship up into compartments with watertight bulkheads, limited the extent of the damage. However, the bad news hastened the death of Brunel, who passed away on 15th September. In 1864, the Great Eastern was sold for a fraction of its cost to a cable laying company. The time that the ship spent laying cables for the new telegraph system was its most successful. It was used to lay the first telegraph cable to America. The Great Eastern was finally broken up in 1888.

From "Views of the Ruins of the Principal Houses destroyed during the Riots at Birmingham. 1791." On the 14th of July, 1791, a party having met at an hotel to celebrate the anniversary of the French revolution, collected together as a mob, and proceeded for several days their devastations, setting fire to several meeting-houses and private mansions, but on the arrival of the military from Oxford and Hounslow, order was restored: at the ensuing assizes four of the ring-leaders were convicted, two of whom suffered the penalty of the law. Shortly after this occurrence barracks were erected on the Vauxhall-road, near the town, consisting of a range of handsome buildings, enclosing a spacious area for the exercise of cavalry, and a smaller for parades, a riding-school, a magazine, and an hospital.
