This is mostly stuff relating to boilers, furnaces, radiators, and similar heating equipment, but I know much of it will also appeal to the nostalgic interests of ECN membership. There is even a complete scan of the 1949 Bell & Gossett heating handbook!

http://www.heatinghelp.com/library.cfm

There are some files in the library which do also cross over to electrical matters to some degree. Check the brief history of district steam heating from Detroit Edison's power plants, or the range of thermostats and other heating controls available from Honeywell.

Thanks for passing this along Paul, interesting stuff! Especially (to me) a few on this page:

Read the list and you'll be able to tell the ones I like.

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Wander over to the Questions area, and you will find threads where people post pictures of there own work. Some of those guys are artists when it comes to installs.
