Zeilinger Dipartimento di Astronomia, Universita di Padova, Vicolo dell'Osservatorio 5,1-35122 Padova, Italy European Southern Observatory, Karl-Schwarzschild Strasse 2, W-8046 Garching bei Munchen, Federal Republic of Germany Received July 5, accepted July 20,1991 Abstract. Photometric and kinematical observations of NGC 1947, a minor- axis dust-lane elliptical, are presented. The stellar component of this galaxy is rotating around the galaxy minor axis, perpendicularly to the gas rotation axis. This kinematical property appears to be present in every elliptical galaxy with the same morphology. The possible external origin of the warped gas disc is discussed.
