Bridlington Electricity Works, 1905

BOROUGH OF BRIDLINGTON

ELECTRICITY WORKS

Staff at the electricity generating station on Brett Street. Bowler equals boss; flat cap equals worker. Workers are standing; senior staff are sitting. 'The lad' holds the cat. The Corporation station opened in 1905, creating power until 1936, when electricity was supplied by the national grid, changing from DC to AC.
