Hey . . .
Im, for a german TV production, in need of some pictures of old (first) propeller-operated ships. It would be perfect, if anyone of you could help me out with that!

Thanks for your help!

Hi Anna, look up "Turbinia" and you will see the first steam turbine powered vessel and look at the prop's. More impressive is to look at all of the types of prop's that were tried and discarded before the final 3 per shaft were fitted.

Hey . . .
thanks for all the "welcomes", the ships we are looking for should be from about 1850-1870, when the first propellers were applied . . .
thanks for your help!
