Throwback Thursday – Power plant edition

Built in the 1920s and was obsolete before it was ever used. At one point it was going to be turned into condos but there were all sorts of issues . . . like the river that made the land hard to develop. The plant was demolished in 2014.

The land is now the home of River View upper landing apartments.  Change seems to happen at a snail’s pace but it happens.

I watched it being demolished. I am sure I have pictures of that somewhere . . . but where?
