Walker Power Building

During the summer, the following picture was posted on this site:

In that post I wondered about the addition of the fourth floor that was going on the Walker Power Building.

As you can see in this photo they are clearly working on adding the top floor.

The building was designed in 1911 by architects Stahl, Kinsey & Chapman, but I’m not sure who designed the top floor addition.

This building is frequently called the Peabody Building. It was attached to the Peabody Building which was on the west side of it, but the Peabody was long ago demolished.

Here’s a photo I recently came across of the building back in 1913, when it was still new, and only three floors.

If there’s any building in Windsor with a underused potential, it’s this one.
