I found a couple of small cabinet photos this morning at the farm toy show. The photos measure 3-1/2" x 4-5/8" and the cards are 5-1/2" x 6-3/8".

The first shows an inverted engine driving a cream separator. Unfortunately the giant gear reduction pulley obscures most of the details that would help identify the maker of the engine. Maybe Temple??

The second is a shop photo of an engine under construction. It's a nice close up shot of the pendulum governor, fuel pump and igniter. There are several sets of flywheels in the background. Hopefully the combination of off-side pushrod and the igniter being mounted at an angle will help identify the engine.

The 2nd picture is a GEMMER for sure. 1st picture could also be GEMMER but not 100% sure on that one but it does have the same setup with the cooling tower, battery box and skid as GEMMER engines do.

I would say they are both Gemmers, one inverted and one horizontal.

I knew I could count on the Stak to identify these engines. Didn't expect to find something this obscure when I left the house this morning! Thanks all for your help!

I don't think I've included these pictures in this thread??.... first a New-Way twin cylinder portable cutting chaff Western Australia 1912, second a Olds at work in South Australia 1915, the third and fourth pictures are Scott oil engines and water pumps at the Mannum show, with one being demonstrated in use, C.1913 South Australia, very few Scott engines or images exist.

This Schleicher Schumm was the first private electric lighting plant in Canada. I don't know where it was but the name of the owner was Redpath and it lit his house. The engine had 54" flywheels and indicated 3.9 HP so I don't know if that is a 2 or 3 HP engine. The dynamo charged a bank of batteries and the plant was installed in 1885.

Picture appears to be the pendulum governor that wasn’t patented until 1887 so your date may be a little early but still a nice picture of an early engine in Canada and they are few to none existent. Thanks for posting.

Back in In 1904, when Buffalo, NY was a booming city. Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to build a grandiose estate for Darwin Martin, one of the executives of Larkin Soap ( huge pre-drepression era company). The estate consisted of several buildings and a carriage house. In the basement of carriage house was a vertical engine ( Two cylinder?) powered dynamo. The photo (from the University of Buffalo Archives) shows the dynamo room shortly after the house was built. The building was demolished in 1962 and the generator presumably scrapped. Anyone have an idea who made this or possibly what may have happened to the dynamo/engine setup?

This wonderful thread seems to have died with some former regular contributors now showing up on other internet forums. Instead we now have heavy activity on the Smoke, Flames and Gas pages. Times change. Anyway what we have here is a 150 hp air blast Diesel engine built by the Grazer Waggonfabrik, Graz Austria around 1910 basically to Augsburg DM type drawings. It is here set up to power a large cable car during the 1914-18 alpine war (WW I: Austria vs. Italy) . Note the makeshift wooden engine room built by the Austrian military, a no go in an industrial environment at the time.

Pic.1: the Vigolo Vattaro (Trentino, now Italy) cable car station with the engine room housing the 150 hp Graz engine in the rear. The Dolomite Mountains forming a spectacular scenery. Pic.2: 100 hp air blast Diesel this time by Leobersdorfer Maschinenfabriks AG (Leobersdorf/Vienna) on basically Augsburg DM type lines also powering a cable car (at Monte Rover, Trentino). Pic.3: Monte Rover cable car station. Engine room is the building in front with the Diesel´s exhaust pipe in the front center. All photos 1916.
