August 2nd TMAG Talk: the steam crane

John Wadsley writes:

‘The next Monthly Talk will be held on 2nd August 2022 at the Royal Society Room, TMAG. The Jessop and Appleby Steam Crane has been a landmark at Constitution Dock in Hobart for the last 120 years. Constructed by Jessop and Appleby of Leicester UK, it was purchased by the Hobart Marine Board in 1897 and arrived in 1899. The presentation will be by Dr Tony Sprent AM. He has been interested in the crane for many years. He will also describe his current project to build a working scale model of the crane.’
