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.
