Mr Monkey at the Bristol Industrial Museum

"Well, it doesn't inspire my confidence"

Mr Monkey examining a linotype machine Mr Monkey in front of a Bristol Sycamore helicopter

Mr Monkey trotted upstairs. First he went into a room full of printing and packaging equipment, where he examined a Linotype machine. Then he found another room full of aero engines, mock-ups of Concorde and this Sycamore HR-14 helicopter from 1953. Mr Monkey did wonder about naming a helicopter after a tree seed mainly notable for spinning down into the ground, but he supposed the Bristol Aircraft Company knew what they were doing.

You can read about Linotype machines at the Woodside Press website and about the Sycamore at the RAF Museum website.
