Waterturbine voor opwekking energie

We have seen a similar photo, which might implicate that more than a single turbine was being operated. Considering, however, the premature stage of construction, this set up was likely for supplying power for illumination and that like. I guess, electrical welding was not yet practised.

Januari 1921

In the background up on the left-hand side we notice what once was designated Kabelgleuf. Translating this briefly: cable groove. In my perception, this implies that cables should pass through it. How? I don't know. The direct route towards the Bandung area is not passing there. What might have been, is that an external high voltage line be it cable or an open wire construction should have used this trajectory.

The photo sequence is not entirely consequent, but we reproduce this albums as it once was created.
