We received an email from a vintage club in Wiltshire, UK. They are also restoring a very similar Bruston light plant. On their request we post a few images of our Lister Bruston with some detail.
Assistance from the UK is offered in case we need any help during our restoration activities. Thanks for this, we may need it!
We have little technical description of the Lister Bruston Lighting Plant in our museum. Available technical description on the internet will be our guide during the restoration process. Documents found sofar, see the below.
In the beginning of the year we start tinkering the electrical part of the Lister Bruston Automatic Lighting & Power System. Documents found last month should be a good start, with focus on patent 29944 from the year 1909 (fully accepted 1910)
