Hammer at the University
Hammer at the University
The first time I came here with my son I spotted this. It's taken me over four years to take this. It is a steam hammer. It was made in 1917 and in use till 1975 and I have no doubt it could still be used it's in such good condition. To give an idea as to its height my son is 6ft 3in and the nuts holding it down are bigger than my fist.SD7108 : Plaque on the base
