SS Great Britain

Now a museum ship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York. She was launched in 1843.
In 1845 she crossed the Atlantic in 14 days.
More information can be found on the internet.

@bristol_colin Look forward to the photo of Clifton Suspension Bridge.
We lived in Wiltshire for a couple of years at Rudloe during our RAF days and quite close to Box Tunnel. It was believed that the tunnel was aligned so that the sun shone through it on his birthday. He was a clever boy.
