There was a mysterious airships phenomena that happened late 1890's. This sounds related. i read into this phenomena and there were allegations of it having been a wealthy inventor who created these, Like a Jules Verne type man who was also an explorer. here's some info:

There was actually a number of sitings in 1909 and again in 1912/13. Interestingly if the Bridgewater siting occurred only a few months after the Tanguska event, which has yet to be explained, but some suggest that it must have been a controlled object.
