MOSI Science and Industry Museum

I thought I'd share some photos taken at the MOSI museum earlier this week. I was taken back by how visually arresting the machinery to harness the power of steam are, the many interesting shapes, angles and colours there are to the intricate components used. The materials used looked to have been chosen not just for quality and purpose, but also to be aesthetically pleasing too. However, that could just be me and my love of copper and brass. If only we used steam as much today, there's something I love about the physicality of a steam train. Oh! And the whistle.
