Corliss engine

Marcella Cooke is posing with a 30 x 48' Heavy Duty Corliss engine at Oscar's Dreamland in Billings, Montana 59101. In order to keep the flywheel as much out of the ground as possible, over $5,000 of concrete was put four feet into the ground and four feet above. The engine was originally sold to the Great Western Sugar Co., in June of 1911 for a price of $7560. See story this issue about the other attractions that Oscar Cooke has gathered at 'Dreamland.'
