The Ingenious Victorians

We all know that some of the greatest inventions came from the Victorian age, the successors of which are still with us today. But this book is not entirely about those.

It's more about some of the weird and wonderful inventions, ideas and projects - some successful, others less so - that have largely been forgotten. Where well-known inventions or design concepts are included, it is from a perspective not previously appreciated, with details of the ingenious technology and thinking that led to their introduction and success.

Here you can read how Victorian innovators were responsible for: the world's largest glass structure; an electric railway with lines under the sea and a carriage on stilts 20 feet above the waves...as well as many other ingenious inventions.
