Blists Hill Victorian Town - winding engine driver
This gentleman in period costume is driving the site's horizontal single cylinder geared winding engine with slip eccentric reverse. He is turning the main steam stop valve and the lever for hand working the slide valve is at thigh level. The schedule of shaft signals is on the wall behind him and some details of lighting and a stove can also be seen in the picture.
