Default Thomson Houston 1880's generator

4400 lbs of "old iron" generator restored by volunteers of The Edmonton Power Historical Foundation
The youtube video was made to commemorate 125 years of electric street lighting in Edmonton, North West Territories. The original generator was AC with output of 1000 volts and had transformers reducing to 52 volts. Power was from an Leonard Ball engine.
Our museum building sits on Leduc West Antique Society's site and is open during events May 20, July 23 & 24, and Sept 9, 2017.
