TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to John Scott Russell
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter explains that, since Brunel has not been able to get from Russell copies of the photographs, then he has found out where the photographs were on general sale and purchased a set for himself. Brunel also expresses his annoyance at the position of the photograph, which means that they do not serve as the Engineer's record that he wanted. In response therefore, Brunel will draw up a memorandum of what he wants to be done in future. 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.
