The Great Eastern ABC Poster
A poster depicting the 26 letters from the delightful children's book 'The Great Eastern ABC’, originally published in 1858 and still loved today. Brightly coloured with period script to liven up a bedroom and encourage easy learning.
All letters feature a fun rhyme, such as “D is for Deck, Seven hundred feet long, And over whose surface, the Visitors throng."
When the SS Great Eastern was launched in 1858, souvenirs were sold to mark the occasion. At this time, Brunel was seen as a major celebrity and the launch of his ship in London was a massive event.
