Looking from the powerhouse across to the old Electrical Assembly side of the plant that manufactured products like thermostats. Most of the complex is connected by skyway and tunnel systems. For some time, tugboats were stored next to the elevator. A chalkboard that hasn’t been changed in my lifetime. Not something I expected to find in this engine room closet.
