1928 Boulton and Paul "Electolite" 110volt Lighting Plant. I am the second owner of this lovely machine. It was installed at Fontenoy homestead (near Wombat, New South Wales) in 1929 after being brought out form England by ship, then by bullock dray to Fontenoy. It was found still in place in its' original generator house with the wiring still attached. All that had been removed as was the large banks of batteries which had been to provide power if the engine was not running. It was built in 1928 by Boulton and Paul in Norwich, England.
