Your photos are of the LeBlond powerhouse, constructed circa 1916~1917.
This facility produced steam heat, compressed air and DC power for the LeBlond Norwood plant.
The floor to ceiling doors were the entrance for an overhead monorail device that ran, 100 feet or more out into the rear parking lot. The monorail and its support structure straddled a railroad track and hopper cars of coal were dumped underneath. The monorail was DC powered and carried one man in a cab with a cable operated clamshell scoop underneath. It was used to carry coal into the powerhouse and feed the boilers.
This poor aerial photo from 1940 shows the monorail track behind the powerhouse...
Ken, here are some other sites for you to visit:
Much of the LeBlond Linwood plant is still standing (part of it is a wine reseller, IIRC)...these two postcards depict it in 1910 & 1911:
The first LeBlond plant (a second story loft) is in downtown Cincinnati, somewhere under Paul Brown Stadium as is the original Cincinnati Milling Machine Co. site.
And lastly from 2005 Google Earth...Lodge & Shipley/Carlton in Camp Washington:
The long building is the old Lodge & Shipley North Shop and believe me, it is OLD! Certainly it existed before 1910! In the Google photo there is a shorter addition shown on the north side of this building, which was added after 1910.
The OFFICE is newer, post WW2 I'd guess and covers the front portion of the 1910 North Shop. It now houses the Meyer Tool Co.
FYI, the Lodge & Shipley Climax division built packaging machinery.
The South Shop is newer and, in fact, was once the location of Cincinnati Shapers. Sometime in the 50s, Cincinnati Shapers changed their name to Cincinnati Incorporated and built a new facility some 20 miles west in Harrison, Ohio. I suspect that L&S acquired the South Shop at that time.
The Carlton Machine Tool Company was located diagonally across the street from the South Shop.
A few blocks south of this Google Earth photo is the Cincinnati Milling Machine Company's Spring Grove Avenue facility, which housed it's operations from 1892 to 1911.
Camp Washington was the industrial center of Cincinnati at the turn of the century. As companies grew, they moved out of downtown Cincinnati proper to the "suburbs."
