Country Life Every Week - - News -

De Glehn found the Thames in all its moods end­lessly fas­ci­nat­ing and dur­ing the win­ter months when the weather pre­vented him from work­ing out of doors, he would of­ten paint the views vis­i­ble from his stu­dio win­dow at Cheyne Walk. In this early evening view of Bat­tersea Bridge, look­ing west­ward, is Lots Road Power Sta­tion built in 1904 to pro­vide ad­di­tional elec­tric­ity to power the London Un­der­ground’s new District and Cir­cle lines. It had four chim­neys at that time.
