The two at the very top of the building look like a flame with black smoke rolling off.

That is probably exhaust steam from a power house or stationary engine of some sort.

I know the city of Pittsburgh did & still does have a large central steam heating system that heats quite a few downtown buildings thru a system of tunnels, it could be something along that line.

A neighbor of mine used to work at a factory that had a 200' brick chimney.

He would wait till it got dark and use pull chains to release steam that would blow the fly ash right out of the chimney.

You don't see a sight like that anymore. Damn environmentalists!

That's a good photo.
Up here along the Merrimac river you'll still find chimneys like that at the old textile mills
They dropped one last summer with explosives. Now that's a cool job! :blowup:

I wonder what fuel that tugboat runs on, and how it can carry enough to move all those barges....
