The powerplant and its dedicated water tower supplied steam for heating and mechanical work.
Lit by the glow of St. Paul’s West Seventh bars, highlighted by the cool blue of the sleepy section of South Side. This castle-like tower can be seen for miles around town; a Landmark at the brewery that brewed a brew by the that name.

From a distance (here, Union Yards), you can still see ARMOUR spelled out on the smokestack in white brick.
Scanned after being recovered from the bottom of an old wooden box for a few years. Circa 2005.
Blast Furnace 7 as seen from the ore yard. Imagine running up those stairs through blast furnace smoke.
