The engine room aboard Steamship Southern Actor
The whaler Steamship Southern Actor's manoeuvering place.
The big wheel to the left is used to reverse the main engine. The wheel had to
be turned lots of turns to reverse the steamship from full ahead to full
astern. A small steam-engine was installed to help the engineer to turn it
fast. The eccentric for that machine is visible to the left of the wheel.
