Preserved Machines on Public Display
Description:
Sometimes, old machines are preserved and put on display after their activity period. They often provide interesting information about the history of technology and science and are sometimes more decorative than many sculptures. We are looking for preserved machines on display all over the world.

Please take a look at the Expanded Description for further details.
