  • Obituary - ' James Chalmers, C.E. on the 26th of December 1868 at his residence, 22 Southampton Road, Haverstock Hill. Aged Forty Nine. The inventor of the Chalmers Target and projector of a Channel Railway.Died just as his second target, ordered by the authorities, was on the eve of completion, for further experiments. He leaves, we are sorry to learn, a widow and family in very straitened circumstances and it is to be hoped his exertions on behalf of the public service will not be overlooked by the Government.'
