Caption

Water-powered mill. Engraving of a water-powered mill during the 19th century. The mill had a propeller (not seen here) beneath with the platform seen here. This propeller had six blades and, with a diameter of 2.13 metres, could generate 3730 watts (5 horsepower) of power in a tidal flow of 8 kilometres per hour. The mill powered a woodsaw (at centre right). Engraving of a water-powered mill at Southwark in London, UK in 1851. Built by the Tidal Mill Company, it was claimed to be Britian's first successful tidal mill, two previous mills being unsuccessful.
