Caption: Plate from 18th century encyclopedia showing illustrations of devices that utilise the sciences of hydraulics and hydrostatics. Shown are 2 types of diving bell and a fire engine. A diving bell is a rigid chamber used to transport divers to depth in the ocean. The illustration shows a diver recovering items from a shipwreck whilst being supplied with air from within the bell. Early fire engines were pulled as a cart to the fire and were equipped with manual pumps manned by teams of men.
