Hackney Borough Disinfection Station, Millfields Road, Hackney, Greater London
This 'disinfection station' was built in c1900 by Hackney Borough Council. It was built to provide accommodation and cleansing of belongings for people removed from unsanitary housing or recovering from infectious diseases. The steam-cleaning operation was powered by the Borough Electricity Station next door. It is a rare and complete survival of a purpose-built disinfecting station.
