factory photography


I just found another perfect site to feed my lust for photos of interesting old things. The U.S. Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection is a series of more than 2,200 photographs of the Gary Works steel mill and the corporate town of Gary, Indiana. "In images of compelling diversity, historians and the general public can view all aspects of this planned industrial community: the steel mill, the city, and the citizens who lived and worked there".
What i liked even more is that they also provide explanations for each photo, presenting everything from steel-making equipment and working conditions to the leisure activities.
