La Suisse, Bateaux A Vapeur

La Suisse, Bateaux A Vapeur


This is my dedication to an original passenger steamboat that still exists on lake Geneva (lac Leman), Switzerland. She is over one hundred years old and still carries her original steam engine, which is can been seen through a large viewing hole cut out of the deck in the main cabin. I had the joy of not only once, but two times, upon asking, being invited to descend into the engine room to get an upclose view on her sister ship. They are a spectacular piece of history and run on lake Geneva as tourist and passenger boats, taking people from one side of the lake to the other (the Swiss and Fench coast). She is displayed in a pharmaceutical bottle, under power, with a flock of swans flying overhead.
