A picture book - but what a picture book!' Canal and Riverboat 'Chris Morris brings to life through this vivid portfolio the bold inventiveness of a man whose genius can be appreciated as much for its artistry as its engineering vigour.
Born into poverty in the Scottish Border country in 1757, Thomas Telford rose to become a towering figure of the Industrial Revolution in Britain and the pre-eminent engineer of his day. Incorporating material from the author's earlier book Thomas Telford's Scotland, this new edition is a visual celebration of Telford's architectural and engineering legacy, from the mighty Menai Bridge to the harbours, manses and chapels of the remote Scottish Highlands.
