Since working on and discussing my own boiler I have started to have people showing me theirs (I'll show you mine if you show me yours kind of thing).

Here is a 'snowman' still in place, but unused. East side, Buffalo, NY.

Here is a newer hot water system in a 1894 built office / residence. It is a fascinating building. Allentown, Buffalo, NY.

Here is a link to more details on this building: https://buffaloah.com/a/va/467/tc.html

    @Steamhead I was told a Peerless PUREFIRE was now in operation, but wasn't given a model.

    Great old house .... that's a project. Slate is expensive ... red slate is REALLY expensive. The simple two plane 30 square replacement on my current project was still 150k (not red). Hope they can just fix that one .... Looks like they got the heat in order. 84 windows .... !
