The 1906 Steam Plant was full of pipes large and small. They were made of brass, metal and painted over in different colors. They carried oil, water, steam and who knows what else.
Lets have a walk around the plant and see what we can find.
Look up and you see pipes
These brass pipes were on the side of the turbines. Oil or steam?
Up in the boiler room the pipes and valves were everywhere. When I looked between the boilers looking to the west sunshine I got this photo. The spooky factor was high in this room.
The boilers were eight on each side. Down at the southern end of the long room the light streamed in from a window high up. It gave this shot of the front of the boilers two different tones of color. Add more pipes and gauges to the picture for a good photo opportunity.
Later you will see a picture of the coiled heavy electrical cable that I was drawn to. After I took several photos of that I weaved behind that area and found this huge pipe and valve wheel.
I leave you with two more sets of pipes at the Steam Plant.
