Not one of my best pictures. This is deep in the basement at the back of the engine house. The vertical cylinder on the left is the circulating pump for the surface condenser that is seen centre background. Behind the circulating pump is the air pump. These pumps are operated by a beam from above that derives its motion from the top of the engine half sewage pump plunger. The beam is out of sight above. Nearer the photographer is a bit of loose plumbing that is against the central hot well between the two beam engine foundations. Access to this corner was a favour to a fellow enthusiast.
