The Sphere - Saturday 12 November 1949
A photographer having noticed an approaching storm over
Blackpool set up his camera opposite the holiday centre's tower, which was
illuminated. He opened the shutter of the camera and, ten seconds later, a
lightning flash descended to the lightning conductor on top of the tower. The
developed picture disclosed this remarkable result.
A VERY RARE PICTURE TAKEN DURING THE HEIGHT OF AN AUTUMN
STORM A very remarkable chance picture of Blackpool Tower taken in late
October as a lightning flash came in contact with the conductor.
