Engineering survey using divers - The Trans-Baikal Railway

The Trans-Baikal Railway - a subsidiary of the Russian Railways headquartered in Chita and serving Zabaykalsky Krai and Amur Oblast. The mainline was built between 1895 and 1905 as part of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Here, divers are being used to survey the riverbed prior to the construction of a railway bridge. Hazards faced for the tens of thousands of workers employed in the construction of the railway included the complex terrain, crossed by ridges, rivers and swamps, permafrost, low winter temperatures, and natural disasters. Date: 1907

Divers underwater off the coast of Malta

Divers swimming underwater with a box connected to their research with an inflatable house which was anchored to the seabed, some 50 feet deep, in Paradise Bay, off the coast of Malta. It was equipped with lighting, telephone and immersion heaters with which the inhabitants could make hot drinks. It was constructed by teams of engineers and diving enthusiasts from Imperial College of Science and Technology and Enfield College of Technology. It was 9ft long and 6ft wide, constructed from rubberised material on a steel frame, and weighed around 500 lb. The team leader was David Baume who hoped it would be the first of a series of low cost underwater living spaces from which scientists could explore the seas. David and some other team members were able to spend a night 30 feet below the surface. The following day a severe storm caused the house to collapse. Date: 1969
