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. You can also reach John Harrigan by e-mail at
jnsharrigan@earthlink.net or jharri@ladwp.com. Day time phone
number is 213-367-2475, fax number is 213-367-3607.
