|Title||Workers on top of smoke stack near Boeing field, Seattle, 1937 |
|Caption||Perched on catwalks, workers chip away at this Puget Sound Power & Light Company smoke stack with sledgehammers. The plant's two stacks near the north end of Boeing field were each over 200 feet tall. The location and height of the stacks created hazardous conditions for landing pilots. The city of Seattle appropriated money for cutting down the stacks by 80 feet and installing a forced-draft system. |
