Mechanical Department.

On the same floor we have the Mechanical Department. Our photograph, however, only shows one wing of this Department, owing to its shape. It gives a good idea of the favourable conditions under which our mechanics work, with regard to space, light, etc., in testing and repairing Registers.

We give a view of a portion of the mechanical department. This shop is in the shape of a letter L" so that it is obviously impossible to get one photograph of the whole of its extent. The part shown represents perhaps one-fifth of its total area. Here all second-hand and shop-worn Registers are thoroughly overhauled before being sent out. The mechanical department is spacious, well-ventilated and provided with ample light. There is also plenty of bench room, and every convenience and appliance at hand for the expeditious handling of mechanical work.
