Powerhouse #07

A downed stack. 

Simpler times.
Same view during demolition. 

The new Buick powerhouse was built between 1971-1973. This area was where the “SEASONS GREETINGS” sign was placed for viewing from the I-475 freeway. Being correct it could not say “MERRY CHRISTMAS” because we were already on our way to being taken over by the “New Immigrants” to America who don’t want to assimilate with us. follow this link to see the Seasons Greetings sign now These photos are still shots taken from Leonard Thygesen’s film about the Demolition of the Buick plant. The bottom photo is from Don Bent’s book “A Place Called Buick”.
