Technical Drawing Postcard
Produced locally in Bristol by Mockingbird Press on 100% recycled card.
These drawings are taken from Brunel's sketchbooks. They show the huge range of his work, from building record-breaking ships like the SS Great Eastern to designing bridges, railways and even carriages and locomotives.
The Hungerford Suspension Bridge was designed by Brunel in 1845. When it was demolished in 1859, the chains were reused on the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol’s most iconic landmark. Any loyal Bristol fans will love this postcard.
When complete in 1838, the arches of the Maidenhead Bridge were the widest and flattest in the world. They even carried the Great Western Railway across the River Thames. Perfect for any architecture/design geeks.
It is widely known that Brunel designed the Great Western Railway. However, many aren’t aware he also designed the Queen's Carriage in 1847 to transport royalty in supreme luxury. Treat yourself or a loved one to this stunning postcard.
Launched in 1858, the Great Eastern was Brunel's final project and the largest of his three ships (standing at 211 metres long). She may not have succeeded as an ocean liner, but she did lay the first cables between the UK and America. An excellent choice for a high-quality postcard.
