Steampunk Media: Ophelia Sightings I



Undated photo of the Ophelia over London

The Ophelia, the base of operations of the band Abney Park, has been sighted and photographed over numerous locations and times... many of which were caught by astute photographers.

[In reality, the group had a competition in which their ship, the Ex-HMS Ophelia, is photoshopped into older photos - quite ingenious! I have posted a couple of their exploits for your enjoyment.]




At President Lincoln's inauguration, Washington D.C.

If you wish to see more of the photographs, please go to the following blog of the lead singer of the group:

I'm not sure what the building is but it's definitely not Crystal Palace.

Sir, I stand corrected! I have posted the correct Crystal Place picture in the second sightings group, posted sunday. This building, well I shall attempt to locate its identity.
