Photograph caption(s): 
1. Credit BG. View looking southeast down onto roof and the north and west facades of Steam Generator Plant, Building 4280/E-81. Vents on roof were from gas-fired steam generators. Pipes emerging from north facade are for steam. Elevated narrow tray is for electrical cables. To lower left of image (immediate north of 4280/E-81) is concrete-lined pond originally built to neutralize rocket engine exhaust compounds; it was only used as a cooling pond. To the lower right of this image are concrete pads which held two 7,500 gallon feedwater tanks for the boilers in 4280/E-81; these tanks were transferred to another federal space science organization and removed from the JPL compound in 1994. Beyond 4280/E-81 to the upper left is a reclamation pond. ...
2. Credit BG. Looking west at east facade of Steam Generator Plant, Building 4280/E-81; steam generators have been removed as part of dismantling program for Test Stand 'D.' Metal cylindrical objects to left of door were roof vents. The steam-driven ejector system for Dv Cell is clearly visible on the east side of Test Stand 'D' tower. The X-stage ejector is vertically installed at the bottom left of the tower, Y-stage is horizontally positioned close to the tower top, and the Z- and Z-1 stages are attached to the top of the interstage condenser. Light-colored piping is thermally insulated steam line.
3. Credit WCT. Photographic copy of photograph, interior view of Steam Generator Plant 4280/E-81 when Clayton steam generators were being installed in 1972. (JPL negative no. 384-9600, 10 October 1972)
4. Credit BG. Detail view of pair of Clayton steam generators. Left part of image shows front, right part shows back. Generators were removed from 4280/E-81 for shipment to a new owner.
