Description

Cross-Section of the steamship La Champagne showing the boiler room, a funnel, coal bunkers, and passengers going about on the decks.

La Champagne was equipped with cylindrical iron boilers feeding a power plant which could deliver between 7,000 and 7,500 horsepower in regular service. Like her sister ships La Bourgogne, La Bretagne, and La Gascogne, she was built with the help of government subsidies, on the condition she could be taken over in case of war.

The detailed caption reads as follows:
a. Donkey engine. — bb. Steam storage tanks. — c. Funnel. — dd. Fireboxes. — ee. Smoke boxes. — ff. Coal bunkers.

The full caption reads in the original French:

Coupe transversale de La Champagne par la chambre des chaudières.
a. Petit cheval alimentaire. — bb. Réservoirs de vapeur. — c. Cheminée. — dd. Foyers. — ee. Boîtes à fumée. — ff. Soutes à charbon.
