Constructing Rhode Station, 1958

Construction work at Rhode station began in 1958. The following photographs were taken of the construction crew, who were hard at work building the station’s massive cooling towers – obviously in the days before hard hats and site safety!

We are fortunate to have the names of some of the men involved on this project attached to the photograph below:
