North Point 'A' power station turbine hall in 1955

No. 7 steam turbine (the second one) was in commission as early as 1932 so survived the war.

This was an unusual type to see in the 1960s as it was a Brush Ljungstrom machine, unlike the usual conventional British steam turbines similar to No 9 in the foreground.

The view as pictured was familiar to me as it looking through from the 1966 ‘C’ Power Station’s turbine hall.
