A Cold And Dim Visit To Banstead Asylum - a Memory of Banstead.
I cannot remember the exact year but it was very cold. I was a TV repair man at Raylec in the High Street and we had a call from a doctor living in a house at the Asylum. She complained that the picture on her Bush TV was very small. I could find nothing wrong with the TV and then noticed that the light from a 150W bulb in the centre of the room looked more like a 60W! I measured the mains voltage and found that it was something like 160V instead of 240V! No wonder the picture was small. Thank goodness we don't seem to suffer from such problems nowadays.
