This image, form our archives, shows the Ultimo power station photographed in 1905 and features four horizontal steam engine generator sets in the Engine Hall. In the background is the rear of the A.C. Switch Gallery and in the left middle ground of the picture, the operator’s cabin for the western overhead crane can be seen. We have been working with a range of historic images that will be featured in a projection in our Turbine Hall this upcoming weekend as we celebrate 25 years.

During this Weekend of wonder you can meet curators and experience exhibitions, talks, workshops and demonstrations.

If you are attending this weekend we would love to see some of your photos shared in our Flickr Group, Me and the Powerhouse Museum.
