Coiling the cable in the large tanks at the works at Greenwich
The cable used in laying the Atlantic telegraph, from Brunel's 'Great Eastern'. The Telegraph Construction and Maintenance Company, under the chairmanship of John Pender, manufactured the 1865 cable at Greenwich. After it had been made, the cable was coiled down into great cylindrical tanks at Enderby's Wharf before being fed into the ship.
