Thomas Sulman (c.1834 – 1900) was an English architectural draftsman. Sulman studied at The Working Men’s College between 1854 and 1858, where he was a student of, and later an engraver for, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He is best known for using balloons to capture birds-eye views of various cities including London, Oxford, Glasgow and New York. Most of his view were issued in association with the Illustrated London News and engraved by Robert Loudan Sr. In 1891 he produced high-level views of major London thoroughfares for Herbert Fry's London: Illustrated by Twenty Bird's Eye Views of the Principal Streets. These were engraved by George William Ruffle (1838–1901). In addition, Sulman prepared graphics for newspaper and magazine advertisements.
