Isambard Brunel’s Great Western was the first ship to establish a transatlantic steam service. Launched in 1837 it carried the rich and the famous for 18 years. Helen’s talk, based on her new book, will tell the tales of the crew, the passengers and the two Cornishmen who were in charge for many years.
