Pennsylvania Inventor Built Amphibian In 1804 Philadelphia (UP)—The 20-ton vehicle hissed andi rumbled past startled citizens in the downtown section, slogged into the water under its own power, and paddled 16 miles up the Delaware i-ivur, leaving a I! boats behind.

No, it was a trial run, 140 years ago, of the world's first engine - driven amphibian vehicle. Built by Oliver Evans, one of Pennsylvania's greatest inventors, the strange machine was 30 feet long :md 12 feet wide,.propelled by ;i 5-horscpowcr steam engine. The mechanical oddity, believed to be the earliest counterpart of modern amphibian monsters, wiis originally designed as a dredge to deepen the Delaware river, Hero is Evans' own description of the historic journey: "To show that both steam carriages .and steam boats were practicable. I first put wheels to it and propelled it by the engine a mile and a half up Market street and around Center Square to the river Schuylkill. I then fixed a paddle wheel at the stern and propelled it by the engine down the Schuylkill and up the Delaware 10 miles, leaving all the vessels that were under full sail halfway behind me," Evans' contribution to industry j were the invention of abclt-buckct conveyor widely used in dredging and the installation, in ISO!), of the j first steam engine over used in a j grist mill west of the Allcghenies, Gen.
