Hackney Power Station

Sorry - this isn't Greenwich - but its such a great picture.
This is Metropolitan Borough of Hackney's power station  - probably in the late 1930s. It comes from "Wonders of World Engineering" Part 50 (sadly not dated).
The remains of the power station are alongside the Lea, north of Millfields Road.

Thank you for posting that picture. My grandfather was Chief Engineer at Hackney Power Station at exactly that time, continuing to run it all the way through the war.
