Actually they dont seem to be that random – I have to make an inventory of substations, they seem architecturally interesting
These are, from the top: Belmont Road, Eagle Street and Campell Road. The photo of Eagle Street was taken in March 2008.
This is the nasty tin shed which has replaced the grand substation in Eagle Street, photo October 2008..
Interesting to note that the same piece of ‘Tudorbethan’ panneling is used in this substation as in Campbell Road
And that is most of the substations I have photographed in Stole-on-Trent, there are certainly lots more, particularly in the north of they city, which I havent yet found (or looked for).
