Down She Goes

Time lapse of the NCR stack demolition sometime during the 1960's

Awesome Brick Work!

It always amazes me to see how even something even as mundane as a somkestack can be so ornately decorated. People used to take such pride in their work.

Functional beauty

That is about the most beautiful smokestack I've ever seen.

NCR Memories

I went to college here in the US and did my internship with NCR.

Unfortunately they packed up and moved shop to Atlanta I believe. I remember the building but not the stack. Might have been torn down at some point I'm not sure.

University of Dayton now owns the site where NCR stood for generations. I might need to do some research but the street looks familiar.

Update. The Corliss Engine house above is now in Carillon park Here


That is some seriously handsome industrial architecture; not just the stack, but the whole layout.

A power plant beautiful enough for a garden party

Stack Jazz

This image has the look and feel of a diorama or scale model. And that is one snazzy smoke stack.
