|Who's the Guy in the Top Hat? Abraham Lincoln? No - an ENGINEER!|
For those that are not engineers (or a few architects), Brunel was a giant of the Victorian age. He broke new ground in railways and railway construction. He also did the same in other construction with ships such as the "Great Eastern."
I had to argue a bit with my kids as they only knew the actor as Hamlet. Well, he played an engineer as well this last week. Thanks, Brits, YOU ROCK! There is a reason many polls list IK Brunel as the #2 Brit of all time - after Winston Churchill and before any "Royal."
