About Cyrus Chambers Jr

From the document of John T. Chambers:

Cyrus was taken into the dental office of [his] brother Edwin, who had his office in what is now known as the Unicorn Inn building, opposit the town hall. At odd times he would tinker, instead of going fishing, playing ball, etc., like other boys. Here he made a miniature engine out of gold and silver, of the walking-beam type, at that time the smallest engine in existance.() It was shown at all the great fairs, New York Crystal palace, World's Fair, Franklin Institute, etc. The last time it was shown to the public was at the Centennial Exposition in 1876. It was placed on a pedestal [next to] the 5000hp Corliss engine, thus showing the largest and the smallest artificial power in existence up to that time.
