    Must have been taken in the early 2000's. LOTS of weed cover by 2007 when I got a chance to get a photo of it from the same angle:

      Do you remember anything about the layout inside like desks, shelves, electrics etc. ?

        I would love to compare it with the familiar British 'Police Box' since they are both from the same era: http://www.policeboxes.com/pboxhist.htm

          Don't you just love that tile roof? The years pass and it just laughs it off. The whole building would have been a wreck if it had had an ashphalt shingle roof.

If anyone has anything that would be of help and could e-mail them to me so I can forward them to the City It would be greatly appreciated and would resurrect about the only part of Plant 2 left. My e-mail is tim.janowiak@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

              Well if it was made of Bricks to English standards they would have been 9x4x3 high

                Great news. We found the architectural drawings and a CD made by the Company hired to dismantle it hidden away with one of our Historic groups. Now to get the City's thumbs out of their posterior.
