Traditionally Venting our Museum Bays!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
The roundhouse has been fitted for many years with powered fan-type "Robertson" ventilators. Most of these are no longer used and are blanked off. But the museum stalls 15 and 17 will retain working units of this type. The ventilator above stall 15 was missing so TRHA took on the task of reconditioning a spare for use there. This weekend, a new wooden base was fabricated by Tom Murison and then waterproofed by the roofing contractor. The last photo (lower right) shows the "new" vent finally in place.
