The magnet wheel was one six 25 Megawatt for Tunatinah Hydro Electric Scheme in Tasmania.I'm pleased that the photos were of some interest, here's a few more. I can only assume 'D' is of a mobile searchlight built during the war. The others are of a foreign (Russian?) delegation probably early 1950s to the Engineering Machining Division? with 'B' showing them admiring a Magnet Wheel Body destined for Tasmania.
Wow, just came across a Parsons Tyburn Road staff photo posted by The Baron. I'm the 1 next to Jogi by the steps. Great to see faces from 30+years ago. I left Parsons to take up a position with Ashanti Goldfields in Ghana then I moved to Takoradi also in Ghana to run a limestone factory. I presently run a specialised chemicals company and a small hotel, check out africabeachhotel.com.Hi guy's you will see some faces from the EDO Pic on this one of Pasrson's Tyburn Road office after the move from Witton.
When I moved to GEC Rugby aftyer Tyburn Road I found so many old faces it was like Witton all over again HAPPY DAY's
