Navy and Army Illustrated 'How a ship is coaled.'

In 1897, Navy and Army Illustrated, a fantastic publication, ran a story about  'How a ship is coaled.' Accompanied by photos, it explains the process which was done every 7-10 days on naval ships throughout the steam era. Enjoy!








Big thanks to J D Davies for the photos. You can find his wonderful blog here:
