Caption: Staislas Charles Henri Laurent, Dupuy de Lome (1816-1885), French marine engineer. Dupuy de Lome played a critical role in converting the French navy to steam power. From 1847, he oversaw the construction of 'Le Napoleon', the first steam- powered battleship. From 1870, he worked on balloons, attempting to develop a navigable balloon. The Dupuy de Lome launched in 1872, and was the first operational airship. Other work included an electric submarine and railway ships.
