The Cable Ship 'Faraday' in the mouth of the River Thames
The Cable Ship 'Faraday' in the mouth of the River Thames. Built by Siemens Bros. in circa 1874 and spent 50 years laying cable. Eventually sold for scrap in 1924, however this proved too tricky, so was sold to the Anglo-Algiers Coaling Company and renamed 'Analcoal' - stored coal in Gibraltar in 1931. Became a Royal Naval store ship in Sierra Leone in 1941 and was FINALLY scarped in South Wales in 1950. The word that springs to mind is "Durable" !!! Date: circa 1909

Armstrong's hydro-electric machine
Hydro-electric machine invented by William George Armstrong (1810-1900), later Baron Armstrong of Bamburgh and Cragside, in the 1840's. Originally training as a solicitor, Armstrong was fascinated by mechanics and demonstrated this particular machine at the Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle-upon-Tyne to an audience which included famous engineers such as Faraday and Whitworth. The invention utilised high pressure steam issuing through nozzles in the boiler.
