Many speculated with the idea of screw propulsion, others experimented, but “
Ericsson alone invented a submerged screw, so complete at the outset in its
mechanical details that it was capable of immediate use. . . . In the end his name

pressure engines could be built, new processes for making metals strong enough

The most important new ideas had to do with power. In 1890 the two main
sources of power (except for human muscles) were horses and steam. Trains,
ships, and many early factories were run by steam power. But steam engines
were big and heavy. For short-distance travel, hauling loads, and farm work,
