The first three seconds of this short newsreel show a London full of chimneys and smoke.

Fulham’s new power station, opened in 1936, cost £2.75 million to build.

The first section had a capacity of 130,000 kilowatts.

The Mayor is seen and heard declaring the power station open.

I love learning about history, and for the past 30 years have enjoyed books, films, and documentaries on the topic. On days off from work my favourite destination with friends and family are museums, historic buildings, and archaeological sites, or just walking around interesting streets with old buildings to admire.
