Centsprent: Bateau à vapeur. / Chemin de fer. 55.
Popular print with a steamboat (stoomboot) and a steam train (stoomtrein), both in relatively great detail. The top image shows the steamboat with a paddle wheel on its side, masts, sails and a chimney. The bottom image depicts a train made up of a steam locomotive, a wagon carrying the coal, and behind it a carriage for passengers. Both are identified with captions in French: ‘Bateau à vapeur’ and ‘Chemin de fer’ (railroad). The blocks were probably engraved especially for Hemeleers (de Meyer p. 598).
