    I see nothing that hazardous unless you're going to stick your fingers into the empty lamp sockets on the left.

    The doorbell buttons and the "Increase Voltage" rheostat are interesting in a slightly
    troubling way.

    Speaking as a former MIEE (Member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers) I think Mr Faraday would have thought it the height of modernity and Messrs Swann, Westinghouse and Edison would have felt very much at home :rolleyes:

    As an apprentice and a young engineer in the 1960's I saw panels not to far removed from that in the old A station at Plymouth, parts of the building dated back to its inception in 1893 and the oldest working machinery (a rotary convertor to convert 6,600 volts ac to 560 volts dc by Bruce Peebles of Edinburgh) was built in 1917.
