of Rouen

Makers of stationary steam engines.

A c.1860 Woolf-type compound beam engine by T. Scott of Rouen is on display at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris [1]. See photos.

Note: Several British families started steam engine building businesses in Rouen (see Hall, Powell and Scott and Edwin Wells Windsor). The iron castings of the Windsor pumping engines at Lisbon Water Museum share distinctive 'architectural' details with the 1860 Scott engine.
