Despite wind and rain on my camera and lens, I managed to capture this somewhat spooky image of the Cathedral Of Learning at the University Of Pittsburgh. The sky looks purple from the storm, and the long exposure.
This is one of the original blast furnaces, dating back to 1859. It produced 11,000 tons of iron from coke, and was the first bituminous coke furnace operating in Pittsburgh. It now stands, surrounded by fountains and colored lights, in the courtyard at Station Square.
This is a night view of the Edgar Thomson Steel Works, in Braddock, PA, which has been in continuous operation since 1875. The first steel ever produced in Pittsburgh was milled here, and Thomson mill workers began the modern labor movement with the Homestead strike of 1892. Over 100 years later, it is still an amazing site to behold.
