Steam is without doubt the greatest mechanical power, (past
present and future) ever given to man. Man owes his entire basic
and continued modern progress to Steam Power and to steam’s
very close cousin, Water Power. Eighty to ninety percent of
man’s power necessities and conveniences in the home, factory
and business are now dependant upon Steam Power. The other 10% to
20% is furnished by Steam’s cousin, Water Power.

To mention a few of the conveniences man depends upon in this
push button age are: lights, telephones, home appliances, heat,
factory power (including the making of our clothing, homes, and the
millions of things our modern age depends on).

Steam originated and built our Modern Transportation System on
land, sea and air and will, with the aid of such fuels as Atomic,
the sun’s heat, heat from the core of the earth, and the other

What are you designing, building or doing with modern Steam?
Please address your questions and information to: ALBERT M.
CRANSTON, 1416 E. Santa Ana Street, Anaheim, California.

Since people interested in Modern Steam Power are especially
interested in a steam power plant to use in automobiles, boats,
trucks and thousands of other uses, we are presenting a new steam
power plant that is now available from the builder at a very
reasonable price and that has successfully gone through extensive
testing and improving through a number of years.

The builder is Mr. James H. Lawler, 8125 State Street, South
Gate, California.

We wish to thank Mr. Lawler for his fine pictures and
information that speaks for itself.

We have seen these engines run many times personally.
