Default The Delaware powerplant - 13-04-2010, 23:59

This industrial cathedral was build in 1917 to serve Philadelphia and surroundings of electricity.
At its best times it had 4 oil-units wich were good for 77 MW.

One building is already demolished.
If the other one is going to disappear is not for sure as far as i know.

visited with KTS, Manvil and Martino
