Physical Description

  • A somewhat complex array of copper tubing on two levels (inner/outer), which seems experimentally more complex than most established boiler assemblies developed between 1893 and 1896. Inner tubing is double-rowed and surrounded by a series of single, outer tubes; all connected to a main tube running down the middle.
