Wolverhampton Corporation Power Station, Wolverhampton

Central Electricity Authority's emptying plant at Wolverhampton Corporation's first power station off Commercial Road, on a basin of the Birmingham Canal (BCN New Main Line). Canal barges can be clearly seen laden with coal from Anglesey Basin, near Cannock, waiting to be emptied. The view is of the extended part of the power station (extended 1936) with the unloading equipment in the foreground.
