    Note the pit on the right side floor to access the bottom side.

    Thanks Jon. I've got a picture somewhere of one of the original Tesla Generators from a trip near Kemptville, Ontario. I'll see if I can find it.

    I found the picture of one of the original Tesla Generators, my guess is turn of the century...1900-01. Thought I had some pics of the data plate and placard but weren't there. This picture was taken in Kemptville, Ontario in 08', on the Rideau Canal which is a World Heritage Site now. Merrickville is not too far from Kemptville and went there as well on that trip. Quite an undertaking to keep the US from invading.

    This generator was in the back of a museum across the canal from town. I spotted the museum while walking the locks and watching them work for local traffic. Got some pics of tools and equipment used back in the mid 1800's and an interesting dog driven butter churn I think...CRStuff.

    Hemingway, the generator lit my candle and spent some time going over it's construction...in detail.

    U.S. Life-Saving Station crew on the beach with lifeboats and equipment, Hull, Mass.

    Crew members of the U.S. Life-Saving Service Station at Hull, Massachusetts are shown in this informal portrait. The coast of the south shore from Point Allerton to Scituate was a very dangerous area for ships trying to enter Boston Harbor and there were many shipwrecks. This station was established in 1889. There are two surfboats and breeches buoy equipment on three carts. The three-masted schooner in the background is being towed into the Nantasket Roads past Boston Light on Little Brewster Island.
