THE CHOIR OF GREENOCK Boys' BRIGADE Organist, LATIMER T. SHARP,
Mid Kirk , Greenock
On this date two hundred years ago James Watt , the great engineer, was born in Greenock. If the story of the kettle is apocryphal, it is a fact that he began experimenting at an early age and spent much time in his father's shop making models. At seventeen he went to Glasgow and then to London to study the craft of mathematical instrument making. London did not suit his health, however, and back he came to Greenock. He was appointed mathematical instrument maker at the University of Glasgow and it was there that he turned his attention to steam engineering. He was asked to repair a model of a Newcomen engine which had never worked properly. This led him to concentrate on the problem of the economy of steam and laid the foundation of his first and greatest invention.
In 1774 he went to Birmingham and next year entered into partnership with Boulton, in which firm he remained until 1800. In addition to the vast improvements he made in the working of the steam engine, he discovered the composition of water and experimented with the inhalation of gases in certain diseases. He knew French, German and Italian and, though little interested in music, constructed an organ and other musical instruments.
