Steam engine, Red Bridge Mills, Ainsworth
Diagonal duplex steam engine by Duncan Stewart & Co (1902) Ltd of Glasgow. Swathed in steam from leaking glands, this was hard at work driving a set of drying cylinders for fabric. This was typical of the textile dyeing and finishing trades. Now long since scrapped - the works closed in 1985.
