Any interest in old electrical wiring and installations while exploring?

Hi everyone, have been a long time lurker and viewer of these forums and love all the amazing work that gets done.

I have a particular interest in old electrical wiring and installations, particularly things like old sockets, light switches, fuse boxes etc... but also old televisions, radios and other domestic appliances.

Is there anyone else on here who takes an interest in these types of thing and makes a point of photographing these aspects when exploring? I'd love to see some of your photos relating to this.

Thanks!
John

I love all that stuff as well, Millenium Mills you would have a field day. Will upload some photographs of some bits from there later.

Meanwhile have something from the local water tower :)

Mercury Arc Rectifier, these were extensively used to provide DC in high power applications, powers ranging from kilowatts up to a few megawatts, at voltages ranging from 110V to 30KV. Their operation is based on the discovery that an arc between a pool of mercury and a metal anode only allows current to pass in one direction.

always think those mercury arc rectifiers look like something from a sci-fi movie, fantastic find!
