The Gasometer... as art?



The Gasometer appears to be a peculiarly British phenomena ( any views?), but I alway wonder what archeologists will make of it in aeons to come.... "Those mounds are the ssites of primitive man's devotion to the god of energy"

Note: Ham is on holiday this week, and the posts are happening with the assistance of San Francisco Daily Photo ;-)

I'm interested in how this San Fran based assistance happens?

I don't know if it is art or not, but I rely on the gasometer next to the train tracks as you enter Victoria Station when I'm traveling on the Gatwick Express to let me know I'm less than 5 minutes from the station. It is my landmark that I am truly "home" again.

Maybe one day we will power our cars by water using Hydrogen technology. In the mean time walking to work may be the best alternative.

Good photo and interesting topic.

We have gasometers here in St. Louis, Missouri USA. They are all by the highway and are very rusty and large. It is neet to know that they are found all over the world

We had them in Melbourne Australia for years until the advent of Natural Gas. Now they are gone. As for Archaeology, maybe Stonehenge was just a neolithic Gasometer?
