A place to see my world
This steam crane built in 1878 is still used today...
Where?I am a bit confused about the right and left though. I thought they were the other way round!
Definitely a boys picture, I'd rather have pics of frocks!
The left and right are perfectly logical when you see the layout of the cab... the left of the picture is the front of the crane, so you move the lever the way you want to turn... the left side of the cab going backwards turns the crane left..Here's a bit more information about the 'where' and the 'what'.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairbairn_steam_crane
Interesting photo, maybe not exactly beautiful but it has something. Diane
Oh wow....I love it!And I'm just as willing to climb and peek and 'ohhh and ahhhh'...and hope not to get into too much trouble! LOL
It's surprising what you can get away with if you have enough nerve - when Babs' Uncle visited us a few years back we were in a church, and he insisted on trying an ancient (unoccupied) stone coffin for size while I photographed him... can't take him anywhere. ;-)
