Does it mention Whitley, Anne? It looks far bigger than the buildings that remain there still now and that I can see on any old map?

I did think that Neil, I have tried to compare it with the pictures of bits of the station online but as you say it does look bigger. The article definitely says that the picture is a general view of Whitley pumping station. It is a long article about sanitation in the city. If anyone could get to the Herbert the original newspaper picture would probably be clearer. If you want a copy of the article I can send it direct. There is a picture of the Baginton treatment works ! And a picture of the engine house. If you are interested in pumping engines the Abbey pumping station museum at Leicester is well worth a visit. I am always amazed at the trouble the Victorians went to to make these things looks so nice.
