Battersea Power Station a98_05903

BATTERSEA POWER STATION, London. View from the north bank of the River Thames at night. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1937 and was the largest brick building in europe. Photographed by Eric de Mare. Date range 1955-1980

Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station located on the south bank of the River Thames, in Battersea, an inner-city district of South West London. It comprises two individual power stations, built in two stages in the form of a single building. Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s, with Battersea B Power Station to its east in the 1950s. The two stations were built to an identical design, providing the well known four-chimney layout. The station ceased generating electricity in 1983, but over the past 50 years it has become one of the best known landmarks in London and is Grade II* listed. The station's celebrity owes much to numerous cultural appearances, which include a shot in The Beatles' 1965 movie Help!, appearing in the video for the 1982 hit single "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" by heavy metal band Judas Priest and being used in the cover art of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals, as well as a cameo appearance in Take That's music video "The Flood". In addition, a photograph of the plant's control room was used as cover art on Hawkwind's 1977 album Quark, Strangeness and Charm.

EDITORS COMMENTS
Battersea Power Station, London: A Nighttime Spectacle of Industrial Grandeur by Eric de Mare This photograph, titled "Battersea Power Station, London," captured by the skilled lens of Eric de Mare, showcases the iconic power station's breathtaking beauty in the stillness of the night. The image, taken from the north bank of the River Thames, highlights the building's dark, imposing silhouette, which is brilliantly contrasted against the shimmering reflection on the water's surface. Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1937, this architectural marvel was once the largest brick building in Europe. Its distinctive design, a fusion of Art Deco and Gothic Revival styles, has made it a cherished symbol of London's industrial heritage. The floodlit structure, with its intricate brickwork and soaring chimneys, stands proudly against the backdrop of the modern city skyline. The image's dark palette, punctuated by the warm glow of the floodlights, adds an air of mystery and intrigue. The tranquil water of the River Thames mirrors the power station's grandeur, creating a mesmerizing tableau that transcends time. The historic building, bathed in the soft glow of the night, is a testament to the enduring allure of industrial architecture. This photograph, taken between 1955 and 1980, offers a glimpse into the past, reminding us of the rich history and architectural prowess that defines London. Eric de Mare's masterful composition invites us to pause and appreciate the beauty hidden within the shadows, as the Battersea Power Station stands proudly, a beacon of industrial grandeur in the heart of the city.
