WHAT’S this strange-looking contraption?

Well, the photograph was taken on March 26, 1993, by an Express cameraman at a Seaford model exhibition.

It shows one John Apps of Polegate with a 100-year-old model of an engine from the royal steam yacht Victoria and Albert II (1855-1901).

It was built by John’s uncle.
