This picture shows the external view of the outer wrapper. 12 stays have been riveted and the most recently fitted have yet to be so treated. Riveting of the foundation ring has also been completed and we will shortly be submitting the boiler to the inspector for his approval of internal work and for his agreement to installation of the new front tube-plate (see picture 49) after which it will be impossible to gain access inside the boiler.
