Here is a great old book I picked up several weeks ago.
This is a 1927 copy of Model Making by Raymond Yates, editor of “Everyday Engineering Magazine.”
This particular book has been reprinted several times over the last couple of years, and is considered a classic in the field.
Lots of great stuff in here that you just do not see anymore, with 428 pages.
That photo of the fire engine is amazing.
If you read the print you will see it won an award in 1913, is 20 inches long and could shoot a stream of water 40 ft!
