TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to John Scott Russell
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. Brunel mentions that he forgot, in his last list of things that Russell needs to remedy, to mention that he has not been able to see the photographs that have taken of the construction of the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's ship and which Brunel considers most important. Brunel had promised to show the directors photographs once a month and the directors now expect Brunel to make good on his promises. The photographs referred to may have been those commissioned by the Eastern Steam Navigation Company from the firm of Cundall and Howlett as a record of the progress in the construction of the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's ship.
