Claude-Francois-Dorothee de Jouffroy (1751-1832), French engineer. This statue was inaugurated on 17 August 1884, in Besancon, France. The sculptor, Charles Gautier (1831-1891), has shown Jouffroy with a model of the steamboat that he had proposed and built in the 1770s and 1780s. Jouffroy's boats included the Palmipede and the Pyroscaphe. The latter was a paddle steamer that was demonstrated on the Saone river on 15 July 1783. Commercially successful steamers would not be developed for another 20 years. Artwork from the first volume (first period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
