Powerful company - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of Hinsdale Light and Power. "The village granted the power company a franchise and donated land for the plant north of the tracks, east of Garfield Avenue. Western Electric, then chaired by Hinsdale resident Enos Barton, was the lowest and winning bidder on the plant and power line construction. The newly completed plant is shown here in 1896."
