Baristers - DC mains

Not just the 40s and 50s. If I recall correctly, some parts of Colchester were still on DC at the beginning of the 1960s.

There was also a house in St John's Street which only had gas – It had never been equipped with electricity.

Slightly off topic but when I did my apprentiship on seeboard in the early 90's Foster street sub in maidstone, still had a DC conveter set to supply 600v dc to the foundry up the road this existed to earlt 2000's when the foundry finally closed.
