Hok Un power station manufacturer’s nameplates

IDJ says “the posting of the article, CLP: The construction of Hok Un power station 1921, Part Four, (linked below), showing its manufacturer’s nameplate, (see the image below), reminded me that I have a couple of the manufacturer’s nameplates from that machine.”

Le Blanc Steam Ejectors were used to create a vacuum in the steam turbines ‘condensers’ in order to turn the steam from the turbine back into water to be reused in the boilers.
