On line talk - Smoke, Steam and Soot

On line talk - Smoke, Steam and Soot

An on-line talk by David Burnell.

David will recall,  by way of contemporary accounts, the building of the world’s first underground railway. The experience of travelling on the steam-powered underground was not without its hazards, and these are recounted largely through the writings of those who ventured through what The London Times described as ‘tunnels with sewer drippings in London’s foul subsoil’.

Invitations to attend will be passed to members. If others would like to attend, please ask through the 'contact us' form on our website.

Our talks start at 8pm.
