Work Description: 
The Shops building of the College of Engineering was completed in 1908 and the power plant across the street was completed in 1909. The tall steel stack was torn down in May 1955. The railroad is seen to the left of the heating plant with its overhead electric wires for the interurban cars. The word "Shops" above the door was later changed to "Engineering". It appears that there is no engraving yet on the stone plaque on the wall of the heating plant which suggests that the building is very new. This would date the picture as being around 1910. Note the house on the right. The upper right corner of the plate is missing. Probably taken at the same time as BL 19-5.
