Construction of a railroad engine. Covering boiler with asbestos blocks
Visitors' buildings. Another view of one of twin overlook buildings shown on K 1986. Structures are lightweight because they were placed on a relatively recent fill. Walls and partitions are of three inch by three inch studs, steel were exposed and wood otherwise, covered by asbestos panels on a modular spacing. Window, door, and solid panels are interchangeable
Guntersville Dam and powerhouse. Generator hall. Roof is supported by trusses with arched bottom chords, concealed by ceiling made up of asbestos boards on steel furring. Ceiling also serves as insulation and plenum chamber and permits recessing of highbay reflectors which are louvered at bottom to eliminate glare. These reflectors furnish the main working light and throw the generators upon which they are concentrated into strong relief; general illumination of the space comes from indirect  reflectors concealed behind the crane relief and turned towards the ceiling. Floor is ceramic tile; wall, glazed structural tile up to ceiling, but of lighter color above crane rail

Experts at Bureau of Standards study effect of corrosive soils on specimens of pipe. Washington, D.C., Aug. 8. Of interest to home builders the country over is the study being made by experts at the National Bureau of Standards of the effect of corrosive soils on pipes and protective materials. Samples of pipe which have been buried for four years in fifteen soils differing widely in their characteristics, are being tested. Included are several varieties of ferrous materials as well as copper, brass, and bronze. Soldered and brazed joints, protective materials, and pipe made of a composition of cement and asbestos are also represented. Walter Johnson, of the Bureau, is pictured removing graphitic corrosion from cast iron with an air-driven tool. The corrosion products are too hard to be removed with a brush or by chemical treatment, 8/8/38
