TQ1878 : London Museum of Water and Steam – part of the electric house display


This building originally housed a Worthington horizontal triple expansion pump but in the 1940s housed electric pumps that remained in use until the 1980s. It has now been successfully re-imagined as the Museum’s electric house to illustrate the use of electricity in waterworks. This beautifully restored exhibit is an E Reader inverted vertical compound (enclosed) steam engine driving a Siemens dynamo (DC). It came from the Bifurcated & Tubular rivet Company at Aylesbury.
