- Steam was the workhorse
of the Industrial Revolution. Steam power ruled
- 19th Century America. At
the beginning of 20th Century, the advent of the
- diesel and gasoline
engines spelled the demise of many uses of steam.
- Steam is still used
today in many important ways; however, it is not so
- commonplace as it
was, say, in 1910.
- This website is
intended to provide an on-line visual record of the many ways
- America used (and
continues to use) steam power and to provide this record
- freely to all, especially
to the younger generation who may otherwise never
- see the diversity
of steam power.
