Steam fire pump, Masson Mill
Steam fire pump, Masson Mill
This duplex rotative steam fire pump came as a complete surprise when I looked through this open doorway. There are plans to return it to operating condition. This was a vital piece of plant for insurance and fire protection purposes and I wonder how many remain to be discovered in corners.
If anybody know of any steam firepumps, please let me know. Better to be told more than once than not at all!
