This is from our recent visit to the Vintage Machinery club in Outram.
This is the compressor that powered the fog horn at Taiaroa Head, which is the entrance to Otago Harbour; I understand it is still in working order; I wouldn’t want it to go off in this building; it would be the last thing you heard, I do believe.

I hope they have a new fog horn at Taiaroa Head. Great shot!

It sure is Hans; I can only imagine how loud it must be too. :-)

I don't think fog horns are used anymore Lauretta, would you want to live in the area if they did? :-)
