  1. Hi,

    The photograph of the Watt beam engine has been incorrectly referenced. Wikipedia is not the photographer. Please reference to the original photographer.


    • Thank you. Actually I have referenced the site from which I have taken the photo, and in which there is every detail of the photographer. However, I will put the name of the photographer: Ashley Dace. And then, some days later, I will remove this comment from here, since this is not the right page (this is my CV page).
