Despite the vines climbing one of the walls, we promise that this building is in El Cerrito or Kensington, not part of the Ivy League. If you know where, be first to put the answer in the comments section below the article to win a prize.

Welcome to the latest installment of El Cerrito Patch's irregularly published Mystery Photo contest. We will give a prize to the first reader to identify the whereabouts of this building in El Cerrito or Kensington by putting the answer in the comments section below this article.

The legal fine print: There is a limit of two prizes per person for the Mystery Photo contest. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older. The applicable parts of the Official Rules for Patch giveaway contests govern this contest.

Is that the water treatment plant near the top of Fairmont avenue?

It's in Kensington, just south of the cemetery, It's a pumping station of some sort. I walk by it all the time. Between Ocean View and Berkeley Park Blvd

More specifically, as seen from Schmidt Lane. At one time the Great Western Power Company until acquired by PG&E many years ago.

John beat me to it. Its the substation.

No, sorry, though from the outside, it's hard to tell.
Charles Burress (Editor) May 16, 2012 at 09:38 PM
Sorry, not exactly, though I suppose it could be called a pumping station of a sort, or at least a relay station.

Congratulations to John, who knows his local buildings! And thanks for adding the history of the building. Do you know if that color is the standard for PG&E substations?
