My name is Anna Chrystal and I am the Education and Outreach Officer at the London Museum of Water & Steam. The London Museum of Water and Steam, formerly Kew Bridge Steam Museum, explores the story of London’s water supply as the vital lifeblood of our city. We have the world’s largest collection of Cornish cycle steam engines including the largest in the world still in steam on its original site.

Almost every modern machine can trace its origins back to the Industrial Revolution, a period when steam power ruled. The 1800's was a period in which the United Kingdom experienced major industrial advances, economic growth and a population boom. Much of this directly related to the move from water and wind power to the steam power.
