BULKHEAD BRIDGE AND ENGINE ROOM “POWER ROTOR“ TELEGRAPH
Very Rare Display
Presented is a custom mounted combination
of bridge and engine room telegraph heads from one of England's early makers Robinson-Evershed. It is professionally made
and was likely a company sale's display. In 1968, Robinson-Evershed was acquired by the famous Chadburns Company of Liverpool.
Chadburns at one time accounted for over 75% of the worlds marine telegraph production and is still in business today making
a diversified list of products for the marine industry.
The left hand brass enunciator was mounted in the pilot house and moved the
pointer and rang bells of the engine room instrument mounted to its right on the Mahogany backboard where a similar set of
orders for execution were recorded.
