The caption on #7 states: "The Windscale reactor, in Cumberland, England, would eventually be responsible for the worst nuclear accident in England's history. But its schematic is nice and brightly colored." However, this is blatantly incorrect. The Windscale AGR was constructed in 1962 and decommissioned in 1981 and so far as I know was operated safely throughout that time, it is not to be confused with the Windscale piles which were constructed post WWII to generate Plutonium for nuclear weapons, were not power stations, and were the site of the "Windscale fire" nuclear accident in 1957.
This photogallery is rather useless, not enough pixels in the world to fix this app.
The wall prints are nice but an accompanied explanation would have been valued.
I want info and background.
