Anyone know of or have pictures to share of a Thomson-Houston Dynamo..?
Hi Fred, Thanks for sharing and I sure prefer the picture of it on the left by far...Let me know if you ever hear of one come up forsake please..Here is one I owned back before digital cameras were around. It came with a very large black slate switchboard complete with all gauges etc. My very first quality sideshaft ( about a 3 HP Hamilton) came from the same barn. In those days new things came along about every week so both were traded off for new toys. Fred
The NEWSM unit is 28 light, the EPHF unit is 30 KVA DC output & 4400 lbs, EPHF got what was available in area & were advised to pursue a Thomson Houston, EPHF would have been happier to have had a Thomson Houston AC version of what was run in 1891 for the Edmonton, North West Territories street light system but it had a 1000 volt output & required 1000 to 52 volt transformers which likely went to WW1 metal salvage a EPHF volunteer created a full scale display model of the AC unitLooks nearly identical to the one at the NEWSM.
