Science Art: Lancashire Boiler with Galloway Tubes, 1898

Lancashire Boiler with Galloway Tubes, from "The Colliery Manager's Handbook ... Fourth edition, revised and enlarged"Click to embiggen slightly

From The Colliery Manager’s Handbook … Fourth edition, revised and enlarged, an 1898 book in the British Library’s public domain collection.

A “colliery” is a coal mine and the processing stuff around it. A Lancashire boiler is a two-furnace boiler – a thing that you burn coal in to get energy from steam.

Yeah, this is steampunk. The fires of industry, here.
