SD9006 : Steam turbine, Elk Mill

near to Oldham, Great Britain

Steam turbine, Elk Mill
Steam turbine, Elk Mill
Built 1926 by C A Parsons to produce 2600 hp. A cross compound turbine drove via reduction gears to a rope flywheel (to the right) and an alternator (to the left). The ropes powered Elk Mill and Electricity powered the adjoining Shiloh Mills. This was scrapped shortly after the photo was taken in 1983. Elk Mill has now been demolished.
When I first posted Elk Mill I was confining myself to exteriors rather than supplemental images. I have now decided that the supplementals are too rare and important not to share.
