Mansfields Gas Works
Official Opening of the New Gasometer ?
Until the introduction of Natural Gas, locally produced Coal Gas and the Gasometer storage system was a familiar sight in most towns. Here we have the Gasometer with I assume the staff of the Mansfield Corporation Gas Department.
Here we have a very poor image (due to the high magnification) of the plaque on the Gasometer which I think reads:
