The International Steam Pages
The Historic Sugar Mills of Java
70 years ago, the steam powered sugar mills of Java represented 'state of the art' technology and the island ranked second only to Cuba in world sugar production. Remarkably much of that machinery remains in use at the start of the 21st century and is in effect a living museum of the steam age. Since 2002, I have been researching the mills and their machinery, I have been granted complete freedom of access by the authorities and this is a definitive record of their operation.
This CD is designed to promote a greater awareness of the industrial heritage represented by these mills both inside Indonesia and across the rest of the world.
There are more than 1250 pictures Each image is designed to be presented on a full 1024 x 768 or 800x600 (sVGA) screen using 'Hi-color setting'. Apart from a few which have appeared on my web site, none of the pictures have ever been published and this is the definitive record of these sugar mills and their largely steam powered/driven machinery:
