The Baxter Steam Engine with Flowers

Emma Allison was the engineer of a six horsepower Baxter steam engine. The engine itself is not generally mentioned in accounts of Emma’s work but this article, from Pacific Rural Press, Volume 12, Number 13, September23,  1876, gives a delightful description of how Emma decorated it. It also confirms that she spoke to people about moving to California after the Centennial.
