The Leviathan was to become the Great Eastern after the launch. Isambard Kingdom Brunel was the chief engineer and promoter of the "Great Ship", sadly he died just after the launching. This image perhaps more than any other captures the essence of Britain's industrial power in the mid 19th century.
