This site is dedicated to a very special building among the fans of the pop group Pink Floyd. Battersea Power Station appeared on the cover of their album Animals (1977). Designed by the famous British architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, with a sumptuous Art Deco control room, Italian marble turbine hall, polished parquet floors, wrought iron staircases and the four characteristic white smokestacks it provided London with electricity between 1937 and 1980.
Today, a shadow of its past, the building awaits its future fate.
Due to having a daughter in 2005 and an unfortunate disk-crash in early 2006 where I lost a lot of photos that were waiting to be published on the website I lost the energy and inspiration to maintain the website.
On November 13, 2010 I received photos of the original blueprints for Battersea Power Station. This is a find too great to be kept from anyone interrested in this building. I'm planning to post these photos as soon as I can. Thank you again Mick for these photos, they are greatly appreciated.
