Steamers of the Izhevsk’s Plants on the 1910-s

Izhevsk’s lake in the XIX - first half of the XX century was an important transport artery to support the work of the Izhevsk’s plants, primarily to connect the plants with Volozhka and Koltoma. To reduce the cost and to increase the speed of transportation in the late XIX century the first steamships appeared on the Izhevsk’s lake. Based on the documentation of the Izhevsk’s and Votkinsk’s plants, local literature and analysis of photographic materials, an attempt was made to establish the total number of Izhevsk steamships and their names. Despite the fact that in different periods there were only two actively used steamships on the lake, the total number of them was at least six. The most likely picture of the composition of the Izhevsk Shipping was follows. Steamer “Storm”, probably, and remained on Kama. “Pchelka” a former ship merchant I.I. Bodalev, was used as a non-self-propelled boat. The motor boat, probably “Granata”, was operated on the lake for a short time, in the early 1920-s was taken back to the Kama. In 1921, the two most actively used steamship "Izh" and "Shrapnel" were renamed the “Krasnaya Zvezda” and “Svoboda”. And in the mid-1920's they were joined by the steam-ship “Krasnaya Zarya”, just built in Votkinsk, renamed the “Krasny Splavshik”. In the late 1920's “Krasnaya Zvezda” returned to Votkinsk, where under the name “Azin” she worked on a local lake. The two remaining steamships served on the Izhevsk pond until the 1950-s.
