Steaming at 36 knots during Full Power Trials in 1900. (Please see thread under Royal Naval Ships) Notice the huge ventilating cowls between the funnels. The photographer did well to hang onto his 1900 equipment when the wash hit his boat!

Thanks Alan. The photo was the property of Parsons Marine SteamTurbine Company, sadly no longer around. Of course as Hawthorn Leslie built her there were many copies at Hebburn. As far as I am concerned I will be delighted if you use it as a basis for a painting. Please post the completed work.

My sources say it was TURBINIA, granted also British, but none the less TURBINIA? Alan Hill Bridgeport, Pa. USA

Hi Alan. Turbinia was Charles Parsons own research prototype, about half the size of HMS Viper. See my Turbinia post under Special Purpose Ships for a photo and my thread under the same name for the story.

Thank you for the photo Fred.

I first saw this photo when I was very young, in a book that was given to me... I think she looks particularly fabulous in this shot and always have. Her end came far too soon.
