Oil well, 19th century Featured Image

Oil well, 19th century

Oil well. Crude oil erupting from a wellhead in a 19th-century oil field. The wellhead is the structure used to contain and pump oil as it reaches the surface from deep underground, often, as here, under great pressure. This oil well is in the Balakhani oilfield in Baku, Azerbaijan, then under Russian rule. Oil had been produced in this region since at least the 16th century. The first modern oil wells here were drilled in the 1840s. The oil industry here expanded over the following decades, with large amounts of oil still being obtained here today. Artwork from the first volume (first period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly La Science Illustree

Telegraph printer, 1889 C013/8777 Featured Image

Telegraph printer, 1889 C013/8777

Telegraph printer. 19th-century artwork of a telegraph printer developed by Moore and Wright in the 1880s. The electric telegraph had been developed in the 1830s and 1840s, but previously had been printed on narrow strips of paper. This invention allowed columnar printing on sheets or rolls of paper, as seen here. This was known as a column-printing telegraph. In 1890, Moore and Wright's patent was sold for GBP 30, 000. Artwork from the 4th volume (second period of 1889) of the French popular science weekly La Science Illustree

Sectional view of Gay-Lussacs lead chambers and absorption towers, 1870

Sectional view of Gay-Lussac's lead chambers and absorption towers, 1870. These were for the large-scale production of sulphuric acid also (Oil of Vitriol or H2SO4), one of the most important industrial chemicals. Invented in 1827, Gay-Lussac's (1778-1850) method only came into use after the invention by John Glover (1817-1902) of the denitrating tower (E) some thirty years later. From Les Merveilles de l'Industrie by Louis Figuier. (Paris, c1870). Engraving
