Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station 1934
So iconic is the profile of Battersea Power Station’s four chimneys that it is hard to imagine that there were originally just two.  The first phase of the development, Station A, opened in 1933, but it wasn’t until 1953 that Station B, on the western side, was complete.  Architect Sir Giles Gibert Scott’s other work included another modern classic on a considerably smaller scale: the red telephone box.
This power station is also featured in Hanson’s music video for “Where’s The Love”!
