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.

Wood engraving, sheet approx 620 x 910mm (24½ x 35¾"). Folded.
Large image of the 'Great Eastern' steam ship, by far the largest ship of her time, with decorative border and cartouches showing it in construction and from different angles, published in advance of the ship's maiden voyage. The ship was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and built by Scott Russell & Co.Ltd, London (screw engines by James Watt & Co.Ltd, Birmingham), to meet demand for a ship capable of journeying to India and the Far East under steam and without stopping for refueling. Work started on the ship, which at first was going to be called the Leviathan, in 1854. However, due to problems encountered in building the ship and in trying to launch it, the ship (by 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. Brunel, already mortally sick by this time, 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 Mooltan was registered for P & O on Mar.8th 1861. Designed as P & Os most luxurious vessel to date, she was expensively decorated throughout. Her engines were the company's first compound type and were designed to cut the consumption of coal by half. To assist in maintaining a reliable service speed, she was designed with a narrow beam, but this produced severe rolling in a cross sea and she was never a successful ship. Her maiden voyage started 20th Jul.1861 when she left Southampton for Alexandria and she was later transferred to the Calcutta to Suez route (this was before the opening of the Suez Canal when UK - India passages were covered in two parts).

Two of P&O's iron paddle steamers, 'Ripon' (1846) and 'Indus' (1847), built at Money Wigram's Blackwall Yard and operating the Southampton - Alexandria service. At Alexandria the passengers for India disembarked, travelled up the Nile to Cairo, then travelled overland to Port Suez. The Alexandria to Suez railway opened in 1858 and the Suez Canal in 1869. After an illustrious career, bringing to England the Prime Minister of Nepal, the first hippopotomus since Roman times and Giuseppe Garibaldi, the 'Ripon' was scuttled off Trinidad in 1880. The Indus was converted to a sailing ship in 1863 and became a coal supply ship.

The SS ‘Great Britain’ was the first screw-propelled vessel to cross the Atlantic, as well as being the first iron-built ship to do so. She sailed from Liverpool to New York in 1845, taking 14 days 21 hours to make the crossing. She was completed in Bristol in 1843 for the Great Western Steamship Company to the plans of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Accommodation was provided for about 360 passengers. The Great Britain was employed in the Australian trade from 1852, and then had her engines removed and was converted into a sailing vessel in 1882. Her seagoing life ended in the Falkland Islands in 1886. In 1970 she was brought back to the dock in which she was built, for preservation.

Coloured lithograph. 390 x 510mm. Trimmed to image on three sides.
This print is black-lined presumably in memory of the great loss of life. A report from the Liverpool Mercury on Friday the 11th of January stated that the Sunday past had seen strong gusts of wind, but many vessels went to sea as there was nothing to indicate that a huge storm was about to follow the winds…...The losses recorded at sea were damaging. Many ships were battered and wrecked at sea, as well as in the coastal ports. Many ships that were lost and damaged are named in the narrative, as well as giving lists for some of the seamen who were lost or rescued the day after the hurricane. All areas of the country suffered looses at sea, as well as casualties and fatalities in the ports.
