One of them is an appeal for information about a steam engine which is being restored. The article doesn't mention Greenwich but it is here that the engine was built - well aware, I suppose, of the fathomnless depths of the Boroughs ignorance of the technological achievements of its past.
This is about the Museum of Western Australia who restoring an engine from the SS Xantho originally installed in a Crimean War era gunboat. They are trying to produce a virtual copy of this engine which they say is of 'considerable significance in the history of manufacturing technology' and that it is the 'only example of a John Penn and Sons trunk engine which was the most common type of Royal Navy warship engines 1870-75'.
They are asking for some help with details of construction. I am including this because the factory was here, on Blackheath Hill, and because anywhere else in the world you would expect some local knowledge about it - but sadly, while they care about these things in Western Australia, we clearly don't.
If anyone thinks they can help, please let us know and we can forward it to the correct person.
