One of two vertical steam turbines at the Georgetown Steam Plant, in south Seattle.
In-camera multiple exposures provide a different look at the plant, built in 1906.
The plant was built to provide electricity to Seattle's street car system.
Taking artistic license to add visual complexity to an already interesting landmark.
The building and equipment is slowly being restored by a team of volunteers.
Open to the public one Saturday a month, to wander around or take a guided tour.
Not your everyday on/off switch.
Beautiful dials and gauges and controls throughout the plant.
A 14mm wide-angle lens and in-camera multiple exposure.
Direct current (DC) electricity was provided to the street car system and alternating current (AC) to the then independent city of Georgetown.
The building is a National Historic Landmark, a Seattle City Landmark and is on the Washington State Register of Historic Places.
A third turbine - horizontal rather than vertical - was installed in 1919.
A catwalk leads from the balcony, to the vertical turbines and on to the boilers.
A nine-frame, in-camera multiple exposure adds a bit of drama.
