This picture was sent to us by John Harrigan of 15139 E. Valdemar Drive, Hacienda Heights, CA 91745. He is writing a book about the Lowe Gas Company of California. The photo comes from an 1899 company brochure with caption reading: 'One of the Gas Engines that has furnished electric power for operating the Mount Lowe Railway for the past six years.' While the generator was said to be a 100 HP one, Mr. Harrigan would like to know the size of the engine and its manufacturer. Any information will be gratefully received.
