A brick powerhouse and 255-foot chimney for Cambridge Electric Light Company, located on the bank of the Charles River at Western Avenue. Exact location uncertain.
Engineering Record article 1 Nov 1902 says the powerplant was “recently completed.” A 1995 book says it was built in five months. Other notes claim the last 100 feet of the chimney was built in 14 days. Bricklaying System has a number of construction photos of the chimney.
A preliminary call for workers in July 1901 indicates the project may have been delayed for some time.
