Looks like a 2-6-4 tank engine, a Class W. If so they were constructed with side tanks taken off the ill fated "River" class locos.

Victorian boiler house for the steam pumps of the former Southwark and Vauxhall Waterworks Company whose reservoirs and filter beds occupied the land on which Battersea Power Station was constructed.

I think this a railwayman's hut, there do not appear to be any embrasures.

The cranes on the jetty could unload from two colliers at a rate of up to 480 tons per hour; coal was shipped from Cardiff, Newport, the Tyne, Sunderland, etc. It was transferred to the storage area or directly to the stations boilers by a conveyor belt system

Colliers awaiting a berth at the pier tied up at mooring buoys on the opposite (north) bank of the river.



The colliers had retractable funnels allowing passage under Thames bridges at high tides.
