The Institution of Civil Engineers (UK) have, via JISC Collections and Thomas Telford Publishing, created a virtual library to all ICE publications (journals, proceedings, minutes, transactions, and division papers) from 1836 to 2001. You can search the ICE Virtual Library for free; however, all full text content is only available to subscribers. However, Waldo Library will order any of these articles for you for free via Interlibrary Loan.
This is a rich source of civil engineering history in Great Britain for a hundred and fifty years.
I’ve placed a link to this resource in our Civil Engineering Databases page.
