Here's a closer view of the old Westinghouse transformer featured in the previous photo. Transformer probably goes back to around 1919-1920. Not too many of these left nowadays!

I ran across one down in St. Paul a while back, but it was going away due to a voltage upgrade. They sure look cool though.

Too bad that one hit the graveyard. These transformers are pretty old--I think they are the successor to the ancient "garbage can" units from the 1910's.

I personally wouldn't have minded if the conditions were better when I photographed this old can. It was about 8:00 PM with a thunderstorm rolling in. Didn't make for good lighting at all.
