I can’t say that I knew the name though I am familiar with the iconic S1 Steam Engine.

There was a Doodle for Indian ‘magic’ mathematician  Shakuntala Devi yesterday. I didn’t cover it because I really couldn’t see a ROI.

But, I had to cover Loewy just because of the S1. NOT, by a long chalk, one of my favorite steam engines,
but I kind of like it because it is kind of gaudy.

Lets be fair, YOU can’t beat us Brits when it came to designing steam engines that will make your heart flutter.

The iconic, but kind of gawky, Pennsylvania Railroad’s S1 steam locomotive.

The British, more muscular, overtly MORE phallic, equivalents:

Now, I love this engine. Form and function.
