In his Clapham workshop, Wimshurst made several types of electrostatic generators
, often introducing modifications to improve them.
Lightning Rod and Franklin's Static Electricity Tube, Box of Leyden Jars (demonstrating the first "battery", built and named by Franklin), Franklin's Electrostatic Generator
and Thornton Oakley's "Mural of Franklin's Lightning".
Behind it, four electrostatic generators
use LP records to create electrical charges, then store the energy in Leyden jars.
