Looking west in the Lockport Powerhouse generator room on February 10, 1919, six of the seven generators are shown. The seventh is behind the photographer. Generators one and two at the far end were replaced with vertical units in 1935. Units 3, 4, 6, and 7 were taken out of service after 1938 when the diversion of Lake Michigan water was curtailed. Generator five remained in standby service until 1973. (MWRD photo 6906)
