Coiled (double) horizontal copper tubing. Two tube ends protrude from both sides; but theleft side tubing purposely points to the right side from the top (possible design consideration to a particular aerodrome model). Please note: This is the original object photographed in Langley's "Memoir of Mechanical Flight" as boiler type "I", featured in the "Boilers of Aerodromes" picture template.
