Description

Excerpt from History and Description of the Steam-Ship Great Britain, Built at Bristol for the Great Western Steam-Ship Company: To Which Are Added, Remarks on the Comparative Merits of Iron and Wood as Materials for Ship-Building

Perhaps the most interesting portion of the whole structure is the machinery, and the screw, by which she is propelled. The latter is on the same principle, but slightly modified, as that invented by Mr. F. P. Smith, of the Patent Ship Propeller Com pany (who supplied it), and who, some years ago, exhibited it in the Archimedes. The manner in which it is fixed, worked, and speeded, will be seen by the illustrations.
