A Reade Submarine

All three generations of the Reade family were prolific inventors. Their inventions like Airships, Land ships, submarines, and robots were first powered by steam and later by electric. These inventions were crafted at their Reade Works plant in Reade Pennsylvania.
This submarine used a combustion engine for propulsion.
