Turnbull Bros, Belford Northumberland

I was sent the following pictures to identify, they were part of a fleet of 6 engines owned by Turnbull Bros of Belford, Northumberland and have recently come to light as the result of investigations into a descendants family history.

First pictures is of a Fowler General Purpose Engine working on a belt.

The second picture is a McLaren Ploughing Engine ploughing, this looks like one of their smaller examples, a compound engine probably built around the time of the First World War.

Wow, today the technology have made everything very small and improved as compared to the old times. I loved to know that they also have memories of this old machinery. Moreover I liked this https://upstarthr.com/how-recruiters-manage-to-find-talented-students-with-no-job-experience/ website because it is very interesting and entertaining.
