Electrical transformer kiosk, Derby

An electrical transformer kiosk (Derby) on Friar Gates. This kiosk, made by Walter MacFarlane and Company of the Saracen Foundry, Glasgow, formed part of Derby's original electrical lighting scheme of 1893 and is now preserved in situ. The kiosk has the 'buck in the park' emblem on the side. Now Derby's coat of arms, 'the buck in the park' first appeared on a medieval seal in 1446.
