Retro photos: Who are you?

Can you help ID these people?

These photos look like they were taken in the 1980s and '90s. What do you think? 

Can you identify anyone in the photos from the Duke Energy archives in Chalrotte, N.C., or know when or where they were taken? Email, and include the photo number or attach the image.

Mystery solved


Ed Brewer, Duke Energy vice president of Operational Excellence Assessments and Oversight, identified the man in Photo 566 as Ronnie Allen, “who worked in fuel handling at Roxboro Plant for decades. In the photo, he is operating coal car unloading equipment at Roxboro, from the ‘control tower.’ I had immediately recognized the location and equipment, as I have a photo of my father, Harry Brewer, in the exact location, from the same angle (below). The photos were taken by Martel Gibson, a clerk at Roxboro (retired), who was assigned the duty of documenting typical tasks within the power plant in October 1974. Martel gave me the picture of my dad when I worked at Roxboro in the ‘90s. Also note that my older brother, Duncan, is a project manager for CCP, and works a great deal at Roxboro Plant these days.”
