This picture taken by Koichi Hirata of Saitama, Japan of this beautiful Rider or Heinrici engine. Engines like these were not only functional, but decorative and meant to be seen.
This engine is from Europe, and was restored by the folks at the Rusty Iron Gallery. A small fire in the base (note the access door) provides the heat to pump the water.
An old drawing showing a picture of Mr. Ericsson (?) with some of his engines to give you an idea of scale.
