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.
