Posted By Robert. Stephenson

The presentation is illustrated with the use of historic documents, paintings, video and sound and focuses on the relationship between Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel.  Short biographies compare the main characteristics of the men and the presentation goes on to discuss their involvement in the east coast railway schemes which eventually become the East Coast Main Line.  The talk is then broadened out to include Robert Stephenson’s relationships with other Victorians and the schemes which he was involved with in later life.


The Speaker is Michael Taylor who is a Trustee, Exhibitions Curator, Newsletter Editor and Webmaster of the Robert Stephenson Trust.  He is a Chartered Civil Engineer, Past Chairman of the North Eastern branch and Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and is North East Representative for the Panel for Historical Engineering Works.
