Hydraulic station water tank
.

This cast iron water tank, located inside the former Spencer Street Power Station, was built in 1889 by J. Abbot and Co. from Gateshead in England. It was used as part of the city's hydraulic power scheme, which pumped water under pressure to provide hydraulic power for lifts and other devices. It was added to the Victorian Heritage Register in May 2007.
