    The night view is spectacular. Years ago the mills lit up this town and helped build this country.

  4. Hardly looks like the same place, the night lights giving the plant so stark an appearance.

    This was part of my growing up in Pittsburgh. They were always there-bright and alive bringing life to the city. Thanks for capturing this last one for me. Love both the day and the night view as they were always there 24-7!

    Haunting captures of a once common manufacturing scene that’s almost extinct in our country.

  11. Industry in the backdrop of homes… it’s a strong visual contrast.
