Wonders of World Engineering
6 July 1937

You certainly don't have to be an engineer to appreciate this wonderful magazine that was published weekly in the late 1930s.
Presents delightful exuberance about mastery of nature & building big challenging things!

Achievements of the day were certainly impressive & appear so even now

Explanations & photos are fascinating! Lots of photos. Very interesting

The cover shows the locomotive coaling plant at Doncaster, Yorkshire, one of the main locomotive centres of the London and North Eastern Railway. A truckload of coal is seen being raised to the top of the chute down which the coal is discharged into the tender of the locomotive below
