This Stirling engine, which uses the heating and cooling of air to drive the fan, was made in Germany around 1900. The donor, W. Orson Banfield, was born in Vancouver in 1898. His parents, John Joseph Banfield and Catherine Harriet Oille, had come to the coast from St. Catherines, Ontario, several years prior to his birth.
