Monopoly - Electric Company

Monopoly Board £150.

What picture to give you for the electric company? Well I've posted Battersea power station a couple of times on this blog so I went searching for something different. I found Lots Road power station. Originally coal fired then later oil-fired. This station suits our monopoly tour as it was commissioned in 1905 to supply power to the trains as they changed from steam to electricity. At the time it was the largest power station ever built and powered most of the underground and continued until 2002. Now all the power comes from the national grid.
