London Museum of Water & Steam - the electric house
London Museum of Water & Steam - the electric house
This is the museum's next new gallery and due to open in 2015. The house was built in 1908 and originally housed Worthington non-rotative steam pumps. The electric pumps were installed in the 1930s and this is the sole survivor. The motor is by the Lancashire Dynamo & Crypto Ltd and the centrifugal pump is by Hathorn, Davey. The two devices against the wall to the right are water ejectors used to remove air from the pump casings for priming.
