Vintage Brass Engine Room Barometer Tycos


Vintage Westclox "Ben Franklin" Bakelite Shelf Clock

Up for your consideration is this Engine Room Barometer from Taylor Instrument Companies (Tycos). I am fairly certain, at one time or another, this was in my grandfather's office when he worked at the Central Maine Power in Maine. It is in good condition, glass is intact on the front, the face of the barometer looks good, and the brass looks good but needs some cleaning. This particular barometer has three large numbers (26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31) and between each large number it lists 1 through 9 with five dashes between each of those numbers. The face reads the following: "Tycos Engine Room Barometer Atmospheric Pressure Inches of Mercury Compensated for Temperature Taylor Instrument Companies Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A. Toronto, Canada".
