Contest #158 answer: Vulcan Street Plant, Appleton, USA.

This week we were in Gary’s home town, Appleton,Wisconsin, where in 1882 the world first hydroelectric power plant was constructed in the Fox River, the Vulcan Street Plant.

Here is Gary’s photo of the site


Kudos to those who found it without the hint, as I thought it would not be easy.

  1. This time I really had a big, big luck. As I was sure that it is USA, and I did not have any clue, I simply went to Wikipedia’s list of US cities by population and started to look at cities BUT from the bottom of the list. Green Bay, WI is the 9th on this list and luckily I zoomed a little bit out.
