When the London Museum of Water and Steam contacted us recently asking for a support with an upcoming exhibit, we were honoured to be able to help.
Housing almost 200 years of waterworks heritage, the London Museum of Water and Steam brings to life the history of the Kew Bridge Works and provides insight into London’s water supply; past, present and future.
As part of a new, upcoming exhibit, the museum has acquired a Tylor Listening Stick dating back to around the early 1900’s.
When doing some research into the listening stick the team at the museum were surprised to find that, even with the advances in technology throughout the last century, listening sticks are still used today to support leak detection efforts.
When we were contacted by the team at the London Museum of Water and Steam, we were absolutely delighted to gift them one of our ST-20 listening sticks.
The 100-year-old Tylor and modern-day ST-20 listening sticks will both be displayed together at the museum, giving visitors the chance to witness first-hand how occasionally, simple technologies can stand the test of time.
We are really happy to be able to support the London Museum of Water and Steam. For more information on the museum, please click here to visit the official website.
