Streetcar Power Plant

Debaliviere Place 121

At the corner of Delmar and DeBaliviere, this old streetcar power plant sits on what is still property owned by a mass transit facility, Metro. It sits empty, with no use, apparently. I took the bottom picture in 2009; five years later the trees are now gone.
