L.M. Clement Turntable Drive U.S. Patent #427,970, May 13, 1890

From: "Kyle Wyatt"

Were you familiar with Lewis Clement's turntable drive patent? I tripped across it, and thought I'd pass it along in case you hadn't seen it.

Turntable Drive - Clement, Watriss & Heynemann May 13, 1890 427,970 - Oakland & San Francisco

Is this for cable cars, railroad or both?

It appears to be for street railway service – with the 1890 date most likely cable cars. There is a passing mention to street installation – but it really does not say outright.
