LONDON. 5 Parts de Fondateur. olive, black. No 89921-25. This project was promoted by Sir Edward James Reed, a British naval architect and politician. The idea was to have truns running trhough a tunnel laid on the bed of the English Channel (unlike the present tunnel, bored through the rock underneath the Channel bed). The share shows the tunnel, but also views of the cliffs at Dover and Cap Gris Nez, with shipping in the Channel above the tunnel, flags of U.K. and France, etc. Always a popular piece, an early predecesser of the Eurotunnel.
