Isambard Kingdom Brunel
"Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Civil Engineer. Born 1806. Died 1859."
The impressive Portland Stone pedestal and surround were designed by R. Norman Shaw. Brunel seems to be standing back and scrutinizing his work (the Victoria Embankment), with his drawing instruments in his hands.
