Re: Boiler - Robison Bros. [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi Rod,

I believe this was the boiler that provided steam to the pumps that pumped
the Duke & Orr dock dry once a ship was inside. I believe the pumps have
been preserved separately - perhaps at the Melbourne Steam Traction Engine
Club at Scoresby? It's a pity they weren't able to be kept together. Often
the first reaction to a threat to an installation is to remove whatever
interests the rescuer most. The better option is to try and keep an
installation intact in situ if at all possible. I'm not aware of the
circumstances of the removal of the pumps so this is not intended to be a
criticism, just an observation.
