    $\begingroup$ It’s easy to do a Google Image search: “The Pateras-Pescar-Guidoni seaplane taken in the Royal Arsenal of Venice in 1914” www-elicotterienavi-com.translate.goog/aeromobili/… $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 1, 2023 at 12:50

    $\begingroup$ For those who have never used Google Image search it's on the Google Home page, on the right side of the search bar is what looks like some type of colorful plant, that's actually a microphone for voice command, to the right of that is a sort of multi-colored box with a couple of dots on it, that's supposed to be a camera, click that, on the next screen click Upload a File, from there you can select a photo that you have downloaded to your PC. As for the icon, I guess the dot in the middle is a lens, rectangle on top is a viewfinder, dot on the lower right is - stop down metering button? $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 2, 2023 at 3:00
