The Black Country Museum. Set No. 1.


This building houses  a replica of the atmospheric engine, invented by Thomas Newcomen
in 1712.  It would be used to pump water out of mines. 

Tramlines and an overhead electric pickup wire.

A typical kitchen in the Industrial Revolution period.




I'm not sure if this was a forerunner of the bus but it seats quite a few people.
