Los Angeles Gas and Electric Corp. Steam Plant – 1967
Today’s post is a companion piece to this earlier post featuring film footage of the steam plant being demolished in 1967. Joyce Kucera, who provided the footage in the earlier post found some photographs taken on the same day and has once again generously shared them with us.
There’s something stately and dignified about the husk of this grand old building. The film footage was exciting to watch, but these color photographs evoked the same vivid fascination I felt as a youngster witnessing the steam plant slowly disappearing day by day. I wonder if I was just a little further down First Street when these shots were taken.
Thank you so much for going to the trouble to find these, Joyce.
An earlier post offered more details on the steam plant’s history in Seal Beach.
