A steam powered ore crushing contraption. The ore would be dropped into the huge wooden bin, from where it would be fed under those 5 hammers towards the bottom left of the photo. A steam engine would have those hammers pounding up and down via the belt driven cams.

All images on this website have been shot using either a Canon S40 compact digital camera, or a Canon 20D DLSR. I'm something of a Canon fan. :) Most images have been post processed with Adobe Photoshop and the CurveMeister plugin. I thoroughly recommend CurveMeister, BTW. It's a great piece of software.
