Cool

when you look at the facade of the Cathedral...it does kind of look like a "cousin" of a Wimhurst Machine

Quote:
The Wimshurst influence machine is an electrostatic generator, a machine for generating high voltages developed between 1880 and 1883 by British inventor James Wimshurst (18321903).

It has a distinctive appearance with two large contra-rotating discs mounted in a vertical plane, two cross bars with metallic brushes, and a spark gap formed by two metal spheres.
