Blue Generator Heads Nov 23, 2006
We're standing in the middle of the main floor of the Power House. On the left are the alternators where the inside would be spinning at 250 RPM. On the right are the bus breakers, where the electricity being generated gets distributed outside of the Power House to the electrical grid.
When the station was originally constructed, there was a mezzanine level above the bus breakers and this was where everything was controlled from. Later, this was removed and a new control room was built sometime after 1910 on the second floor.1
