Old machinery

To keep the "traditional, industrial atmosphere" of the place, the old machinery has been brought on display in front of the Silesia shoping centre. These old machines, once used in mines (or factoris?) have been painted with bright colours (the orange and green shapes in the photo), and nowadays form a huge, intriguing decorations or monuments.... I'll post separate photos of them later this week.

For some reason there is no comments on the blog post for today. So I post here to tell you the machine looks like a large boring machine and not a punch press. It would be used to bore out or drill out large holes in solid pieces of metal. At least we have those or similar boring machines in this country.

I might be wrong though and maybe this is some kind of press using only hydraulic pressure.

This is the second episode of the Robin feeding the babies. Mom had her head down a throat today.
