Schermulys in New Zealand

Back in September 2020 we received a request from Shae Trewin, the Collections Leader at The Nelson Provincial Museum in New Zealand to reproduce some pictures. They had recently been donated a Schermuly pistol apparatus that was used both by the Harbour Board and the Electric Power Board for launching lines to erect power cables. They wished to use one or two of the photographs on our website showing the evolution of this technology.

They have now produced a blog post that can be found at:
