An arty friend gave me a heads up to this little treasure just at the bottom of the runaway of Boeing field. Georgetown steam plant provided power for Seattle’s early tram system.This area is not always great at retaining old historical buildings but this one has found a place in the hearts of engineers and believe it or not filmmakers.It’s only open once a month to the public but is well worth the visit. www.seattle.gov/light/georgetownsteamplant/ has details.
I’m a Steampunk freak and so I just fell in love with the dial and this old elevator.Images will be included in a future Steampunk pieces.
There were great engineering buffs on hand to share their engines.I love talking to these guys.They know their stuff and are so happy to share my simple questions.
