The Engine Room, c.1905 Framed Print



This black and white photograph from 1905 shows the Palace of Westminster's engine room, housing an 8 horse-power horizontal steam engine dating back to the 1880s. The engine was used to pump air to the compressors under the clock tower which then forced the waste out of the Shone Ejectors and up into the Westminster main sewage system. The engine was last used in the 1990s. 

The image has been reproduced from the original glass plate negative held in the Parliamentary Archives.

All our fine art prints are produced on heavy (200gsm) museum-quality paper with a textured, matt finish. Our framed prints use high-quality wood milled with simple clean lines and a satin finish.
