    A Facebook friend just posted these pics of the universal power house. First built in 1913 by none other than Thomas Edison!

    The reason he's posting these pics and the reason he's there?
    He's contracted to rip it all out and turn it into a chiller room :O

    You must be kidding, how could this be allowed to happen?


    Surely it must fall victim to a mysterious fire first?

    In all seriousness im surprised there isn't some kind of preservation order in place.
    Quite sad really. I've asked him to take some more detailed pics before work starts. Hopefully he will.

    Indeed, you would think that as they have so little in the way of truly historic sites that they would cherish something like this? Sadly not so.

    its a shame. They appear to have taken good care of it until now. Its imperitive that this is documented.

    If they really needed the space for a "chiller room" then why not take it all apart and rebuild it somewhere else, then open it as an attraction as it was built by the great Thomas Edison there would be some interest. I would go see it if it was in the UK, bit far for a Sunday afternoon jolly. It's more likely to be melted down but its such a shame.

    A little update for those interested.
    It's now a 21st century chiller plant room. :(
