Work of the Cornish Engineers

    Article metrics


    IN the form of a reprint from the Journal of the Royal Institution of Cornwall, there has been published at the Royal Printeries, Truro, a paper by W. Tregoning Hooper entitled “The World's Debt to Cornish Engineers”, one of the aims of which is to commemorate the historic experimental trials of the Austen's 80 in. Cornish pumping engine. At these trials, this engine established a record of accomplishment which demonstrated to men of science, engineers and economists the great potentialities of the power of steam, and the occasion is, therefore, a fitting one to be recalled and celebrated.
