Holly Manufacturing Company.

Holly Manufacturing Company.

This company did not exhibit on the World’s Fair grounds proper, it having concluded to allow its exhibit of pumping machinery in the Sixty-eighth street pumping station of the city of Chicago water-works suffice. This pumping station is one block south of the exposition grounds, and had in operation four Gaskill high duty crank and fly-wheel pumping engines, two of which pumped 12,000,000 gallons each per day into the city distribution pipes, and the other two (which were bought and paid for by the World’s Columbian Commissioners) each 12,000,000 gallons of water per day directly to the exposition grounds, thus furnishing the grounds and buildings with their supply of lake water.

The city of Chicago is under contract with the World’s Columbian Commissioners to. at the close of the exosition, purchase these two Gaskill engines from the commission, after which they will be used to supplement the regular supply of the city.

In addition, the company had four other Gaskill crank and fly-wheel engines, each of 12,000,000 gallons daily capacity, in the other pumping stations of the city of Chicago, making in all eight pumping engines, having a combined daily capacity of 96,000,000 gallons. During the lair many visitors went to the Sixty-eighth street station where the engines made a fine exhibit.
