What evidence is there for transatlantic technology transfer as far as mill construction is concerned?
I live near the former sites of Masters’ Tide Mill (ca. 1718), and Koster’s Wind-Mill and Boulting Mill (ca. 1750), both along the Delaware River in Philadelphia. I am particularly interested in learning about the likely technology used in those mills, suspecting that they might have been ordered and delivered “ready framed” from England.
Any suggestions welcome!
