In 1880, Jules Verne published The Steam Housea novel about colonists in India. They traveled using a huge, steam-powered, mechanical elephant.

This novel and the steam-powered elephant are well documented.

The Virtual Steam Car Museum would like to acquire an image of Verne's steam-powered elephant. No, we have not copied anything from other web sites.
