Castles in the Sky

Just a small section of Bethlehem Steel's towering old blast furnaces - Bethlehem PA. Founded in 1890 it grew to become America's second-largest steel producer and largest shipbuilder. In the 1980's demand for the plant's structural products began to diminish. Low-rise building construction (office parks and strip-malls) did not require the heavy structural grades produced at the Bethlehem plant. Just one of the many factors leading to the shutdown of these blast furnaces by the mid 1990s. Bethlehem Pennsylvania
