I am republishing these photos, which I spotted on the net recently. They show a factory in about 1905 making steam turbines for installation in a ship. The belt driven machinery, and factory scenes I found fascinating.  Their are also some pics of triple expansion marine engines.007_stitch_zps77e99731006_stitch_zps054b3bae005_stitch_zpsb3b28bf0003_stitch_zps1d5a5cdd002a_combined_zps3034921c001_stitch_zpsf052a758009_stitch_zpsc0136bc1004_stitch_zpsaa48624a006_stitch_zpscc231d7e
