Have fun offerding and good luck.
They do come from a non smoking home, but have been in storage these past 100+ years in an old wooden crate so the condition of them varies. The photos are the best way to show the variety, so hopefully that will help.
Also, if you know of a better category to post these, please let me know. It's hard to find the right spots sometimes.
Thanks everyone for looking and offerding and to all of you who have purchased from me before!
The back story (in case you are a new looker) is that
My parents found them in their 100 year old home/farm and have asked me to help them sell them and get them to people who will appreciate them. The blueprints have been ofvarious Large Ship’s engines, boilers and arrangements of piping, parts, equipment and mechanical engineering stuff. They are of BIG machinery and many from Specific named Steamers, ships hulls, dredges, stern wheel boats and lots of miscstuff.
The old man who lived there and did the blueprints, and supposedly took these picture was named Chas. W. Bale. He lived in Portland, Oregon.He did work for Willamette Iron and Steel, Detroit Shipbuilding Engineering Company, Great Lakes Engineering Works and several others.So far we have seen blueprints of Ships’ cross sections, some light house tenders, some tug boats, stern wheels and ships boilers, and lists of the different ships boilers and whatnot. Some are of some logging equipment, and some miscellaneous.
Now we are getting into the glass negatives that were left there.
I am not a historian, or a blue print/negative collector so I don't know the official terms for conditions of the items. You'll have to go by the photos and any descriptions he happened to give.
I can't promise they are what they say is in there, as I have no way to know, but he seemed to be pretty particular about keeping things in order, so hopefully you will
find what you want as you look through these.
