"Born in the Lowlands of Scotland, and beginning his career as a boy apprentice to a stonemason, Thomas Telford ended his days as the most revered engineer in the world, known punningly as 'The Colossus of Roads'. He was responsible for some of the great works of the age, such as the suspension bridge across the Menai Straits and the mighty Pontcysyllte aqueduct, as well as some of the best roads in Britain and the great Caledonian Canal ... He did as much as anyone to turn engineering into a profession and was the first President of the newly formed Institute of Civil Engineers"--Publisher's description
