BLOWING ENGINE HOUSE - Part 3
I spent a few hours, actually about the duration of the incredibly lame movie Showgirls, building this little addition to the blowing engine house. (I have a TV with full satellite channels to keep me company while building) I'm not sure exactly what to call it other than an air intake. I've seen similar structures on several prototype blowing engine houses, namely USS Duquesne and Bethlehem Steel, Lackawanna. If anyone knows more about these things I'd be happy to learn. Hopefully they were prototypical for the 1950s. Either way I liked how they looked so included one on my structure. I still need to add a platform and some supports,,...etc.
