I love this picture of a Steel Mill in the fifties. It looks more like a sci-fi movie set than a picture of a real city.
The picture, I cannot see it. Instead, I get a DLPS Failure Page -- "A system error has occurred which prevents your request from being satisfied"

Is it a picture you can re-post elsewhere?

And there is no more following your More Inside tag.

No, that can't be it. Not from the 50s.

Maybe this?

Great archive but some terrible coding.

octo, I put your repaired link in place of the broken one, and got rid of the "More Inside."

I visited an office in NYC once that had art that looked like octothorpe's picture, but done as oil paintings. I loved them.

My mom's side of the family all worked in the steel industry; these pics remind me of the old Bethlehem Steel plant in Lackawanna, NY, at one time the largest steel plant in the world. My grandfather and some of my uncles earned good livings there; the environment in the plant killed one or two of my uncles, though.

And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

Reminds me strongly of my hometown (Birmingham, Alabama) steel mill, Sloss Furnace. It's long out of commission, but now it's been turned into a museum: you can wander around the machinery and giant tanks and pipes and such. Highly recommended for anyone visiting B'ham!

Oh, hey! You can take a virtual tour!

This is the Eliza furnace, isn't it? It's crazy to think I ride past on my bike almost every day.
