Photo 113: Several people said this is a model of Catawba Nuclear Station in South Carolina. Robin Turpin, who works at McGuire Nuclear Station, reports this is a photo of John Hancock from the late 1970s or early '80s. The models "were built from the piping/equipment drawings issued for the construction of the plant. Seem to remember that the model shop was on the 8th floor of phase 1 of the Energy Center (formerly electric center)."
