In the old days, very few buildings had electrical service, and those that did had relatively low power requirements. Today, we rely on abundant supplies of power as almost everything we own is powered using electricity. Power plants have grown much larger in response to these ever-increasing energy demands. I was fortunate enough to come across this still standing vintage power station, which was in relatively good condition, considering the age of the facility and its years of abandonment and disuse. Not only was this photo shoot an inspiration, but also a lesson in History and how much things have changed since the turn of the century.
