!he single-action bellows--invented about the fourth
entry
















[2]

Ilow the "Great Bellows" operates: [1] Bottom board
drlops, allowing chamber to fill with air through lower
V(Il,,e. [2] Lever and chain lift bottom board, forcing air
through upper valve to upper chamber and out through
thI tuyere. [3] Bottom board is allowed to drop and
chtamber is refilled. At the same time, upper board drops
of its own weight, forcing air from upper chamber
through tuyere. A continuous stream of air is ejected
while the bellows is in operation.

SW9SSa


perhaps a unique railing, this ironwork graced a raised double cottage
t 3346 Dumaine Street. It was made by a white blacksmith named H1ughi
cGovern, who in his youth had served an apprenticeship under his father,
blacksmith from Ireland. He devised his own jig to fashion the scroll-
ork as well as twist th'e other pieces. No fire was used, and even
e rivets were hammered cold. The house was torn down in the fall of
971. (Davil P. Jones Photo.)
