A group of old Allis-Chalmers breakers out in the open after part of this old substation was removed (the main structure is from the 1920s, and the portion just wrecked out was added in the '60s / '70s with the introduction of 13.8kV distribution to this part of town). I call this general style of breaker the "flowerpot" because of their round tanks and the six bushings are arranged like flowers in a vase.
