Winterthur 1914

Detail shot of the Winterthur engine : Aboard the CGN Savoie : Lake Geneva, CH

Returning to photos from the dinner cruise, the CGN Savoie is part of a fleet of five paddle steamer boats that entered service on Lake Geneva between 1904 and 1927. The Savoie was the middle child, if you will, and was commissioned in 1914. The engines for the boat were manufactured in Winterthur, Switzerland, and are in pristine condition.
