Hi Don,

Beautiful photo! Does any information exist on the engines built for other manufacturers such as Western in L.A.? Thanks again for sharing your wealth of information!

Struthers made many more steam engines than gas engines.

I came across this article while browsing through copies of Modern Power & Engineering:

A Warren Gas Engine built by Struthers Wells, Warren, PA.

Three cylinder, 125 hp, article written in 1908.

https://archive.org/stream/modpowere.../n395/mode/2up

Also a couple of adverts from the same journal.

I am going to cast some Struthers name tags. Any one interested? I am only doing 3 unless someone asks.
