Once there was only paper, pencil, ingenuity, a few tools and skill. Without them we would not have had steam generated electrical power or locomotives.
Without them there would not be any computer aided design or automated manufacture or any of the things we take for granted. Everything we have, was initiated by those who did not even have electronic calculators.
With thanks to those who give up their time to preserve that history. If it still rolls then it rocks.
