I know little about the operation of power plants, other than you burn something in them that produces heat that then turns water into steam, which turns a generator that produces electricity, but I do know that historic power plants around St. Louis are wonderful reminders of the city’s burgeoning industrial might back in the day. The A-B power plant is still active, though I imagine that it’s been converted into a steam plant. Does anyone know?
I am giving a tour of the Lafayette Square neighborhood this Thursday, June 18th. Buy tickets here.
