Thomson Recording Wattmeter. Motor within steel rectangular box spins a rod leading to a turbine in between two large copper blocks. This creates a strong magnetic field.
This scaled down version was used for reading power to trolleys running out of Halsey Substation, BRT SS #1. All of the current coming in to the substation would pass through wattmeter and then ultimately to various breakers. Readings in watthours would be recorded and compared with the powerhouse's coal usage.
