Nautical 50' steamboat sidewheeler

There was a 50 foot steamboat in my hometown during the years 1880-1910. I would like to know what kind of power plant that had on it and the components used to power the sidewheelers. All I have information on is the design of the boat with a chimney. Photos are taken from a distance and when enlarged blur. Just looking for what probably would have been the boiler--engine and drive shaft components. Much appreciated.
