Artist's Description

110 views as of 08/02/12
The Pump-House held the offices of the Deputy Harbour Master and his engineers. There was also a Mess room upstairs for the Pump men, fitters, electricians & hydraulics personnel employed here. The Pump-House consists of a very deep pump-well (40ft or12m deep) which houses the pumps & engines which are capable of draining both Thompson and Alexandra docks. Three pumping engines, each of 1000Horse-Power, were installed. These could pump the dock dry in 100 minutes, removing an astounding 23 million gallons of water.

This is my 2nd image of this building, obviously concentrating on one small portion of it. Over the years the building has changed function and shape. It currently contains a museum to the dockyard and Titanic aswell as a small cafe and souvenir shop.

Taken with my Nikon DSLR 3100 and edited in Photoshop CS5 aswell as making use of Topaz plugins for CS5.
