In the Archive you can uncover some fascinating surprises.
For example, a paper on the first European chocolate wrapping machine (1936), a report of the meeting where Henry Ford was awarded the James Watt International Medal (1938), and an article where the layout, site, and apparatus of the London Television Station are illustrated for the first time (1938).
The IMechE Proceedings Archive also contains a unique collection detailed and revolutionary engineering drawings. Up until now the only way to view these drawings was by prior appointment at the IMechE’s Library in Birdcage Walk, London. Now they have been carefully and faithfully digitised so that drawings – some measuring 100cm x 72cm – can be viewed online.
