Photographer's Note

This capstan engine has been retired after sterling service for the last 90 years. It was used to open the dock gates. (caissons) at the naval base in Portsmouth. Originally a steam engine it was converted to air in the seventies. The capstan head will be disposed of but this engine will find a good home and be restored.
No post processing except a frame added.
