Thanks for posting pic. I realized it wasn't working unless I took the "www." out of the pic address. The articles from 1911 come from the Iron Age Vol. 88. The main description being on page 1294. The ones from 1922, which I included to show that Davis-Bournonville apparently made it aboard the Olympic again after the renovation, though in a different capacity (honestly I was looking to see if there was more info on the refit but could not)come from ASME Transaction Vol. 43 pg 9, and Ice & Refrigeration Vol. 43 pg. 62. I am not to familiar with the Olympic, nor do I have a photo catalogue good enough to do too much research, so I would be interested to see if anyone could shed more light on the matter.
PS: Thanks for posting your pic. I had to do research to learn what the machines described did, and I was wondering how it would be set up. I didn't even think about an overhead drive shaft.
