Georgetown Steam Plant Building of time gone by

My trip to Seattle Electric Company 1906 building aka Georgetown Steam Plant was a step back in time mechanically and technologically.

If you look behind this machine you will see the elevator cage that is used to store signs. This cage does not belong to the building but I found the iron work lovely.

Then there is the boiler room, a combination of pipes, doors and dials.  Add to this a creepy factor that we all discussed as we stood there in awe.
