Wow, a real 'find' stein! A craft that would not look out of place on the Indus rather than the Indal river.

And doing the same job by the look of it passenger and freight carriage to riverside settlements. She seems to have been built in 1887, in service till 1928 before becoming a floating cafe until scrapped in 1934. Very shallow draught ( as little as 1 ft) they could get close to banks for discharging cargo, with no sidewheels in the way. Steered by twin rudders just forward and either side of the wheel, however they tended to handle badly especially at low speed.

I have seen pictured a few sternwheelers as small as this one, they were all meant for missionary work in Africa. Shades of Conrad, "The Heart of Darkness." Here is one of them: https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galle...teamer/cat/518

A yes , missionaries. As Desmond Tutu said " When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said 'Let us pray.' We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land."
