Electrical Switchboard, 1912


This electrical switchboard was made by JH Holmes & Co of Shieldfield, Newcastle in 1912. It was one of four that controlled the electrical circuits at a large shipyard office building. The distinctive finish of marble was used as it is a good electrical insulator.

  1. Last week, I started to teach my students about the electrical switch boards and I saw how they are interested. I decide to browse on the internet to look some details about the old electrical switch boards. Finally, I found the information I'm looking for in so many days. Thank you and keep sharing!
