Historical Significance:
At the end of the 19th century pretty little steamboats like the Elidir were a common sight on the River Thames. Between 20 and 40 feet long, these boats had a simple but efficient boiler system, cooled by water from the river itself. A number of them, in perfect condition after 100 years of service, are still in operation on the Thames.
