Giant Steam Engine Water Pump Chestnut Hill 1973 Waterworks predates Steampunk by a century

You might wonder, why such a a long title? That's so people can find this image when they search for steam engines, The Chestnut Hill Waterworks, which is now a museum, open to the public, and steam punk, a term that has arisen to describe the long standing interest in the style and application of steam age technology and esthetics to modern life. It truly is wonderful and amazing. This photograph was taken in 1973 by me at the Chestnut Hill Water Works, and the film was developed decades later.
