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.

in Preserved Machines on Public Display

There is little doubt the name Iron Chink was a racist and pejorative phrase. However when it was invented it greatly automatized the salmon canning process. From a worker processing two fish per minute, the machine 110 fish per minute.
