Whilst this photograph looks more like a part of a ship, it is the rear engine nacelle of a Zeppelin airship that was built for the German Airforce during WWI in 1917. It was delivered to France as war reparations and was used by the French to assess the capabilities of the Zeppelins until it was grounded following the crash of a sister machine in 1923.
