Power Substation, Pruitt-Igoe

This is the power substation that still serves the area just around Cass Avenue, and at one point served the Pruitt-Igoe housing project.It's actually an interesting little building, with great detailing in the bars covering the window as well as the smallest of details such as the overhead light.There's probably few of these remaining in the United States.
