MAKING STEAM ENGINES, CIRCA 1905
I am republishing these photos, which I spotted on the net recently. They show a factory in about 1905 making steam turbines for installation in a ship. The belt driven machinery, and factory scenes I found fascinating. There are also some pics of triple expansion marine engines.
Double click on a photo to enlarge it.
I love the photos, and everything they show. I love line drive machinery, and the magnificent engineering that they were able to achieve even at the turn of the last century.

Some incredible photos of engineering from the turn of last century.
Incredible what engineers can make with seemingly inadequate technology
