Captain Koenig at the Periscope
A drawing from life made by Henry Reuterdahl, the well known marine artist, who is the only
man ever permitted to make sketches within the hull of the Deutschland. Captain Koenig,
who has never before posed before an artist, consented to don his navigating garb
and stand at the periscope in order to give the Scientific American a true
conception of working conditions aboard the vessel when underway.
A key to this picture, with the names of all the details of this
complex mass of machinery, will be found on page 151.
