Description

Detail from a model of an engineering workshop in the Science Museum. The engine is of the 'table' type patented by Henry Maudslay in 1807. It takes its name from the fact that the cylinder is mounted on a table supported by four columns, with the crankshaft underneath. Unusually, the engine shown here is part of the workshop it drove - usually, it would have been situated in a seperate room.
