    View of a worker drilling bolt holes into finished steel rails at an unknown manufacturing plant. This photograph is one of a set of seven stereographs detailing the production of steel.

    • after 1895

    View of several workers removing a steel plate from a cutting machine at an unknown manufacturing plant. This photograph is one of a set of seven stereographs detailing the production of steel.

    • after 1895

    View of a worker using a rolling mill to produce steel rails at an unknown manufacturing plant. During the production of steel, mills are used to shape the steel into various forms, such as plates or rails. This…

    View of a rolling mill at the Homestead Steel Mill in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rolling a slab of steel into a thin plate. This photograph is one of a set of seven stereographs detailing the production of steel.

    • after 1895

    View of two workers using a rolling mill to compress and lengthen billet blooms, a semi-finished steel product often transformed into finished products like rails or wire rods, at an unknown manufacturing plant. This…

    • after 1895

    View of a worker using an electric machine to draw billet, a semi-finished steel product often transformed into finished products like wire rod, from a re-heating furnace at an unknown manufacturing plant. This…

    • after 1895

    View of a worker inserting a steel ingot, a piece of relatively pure material cast into a shape suitable for further processing, into a rolling mill at an unknown manufacturing plant. During the production of steel,…

    • after 1895

    View of a 100-ton capacity ladle of liquid steel removed from an open hearth furnace at an unknown manufacturing plant. Open hearth furnaces are used to burn excess carbon and other impurities out of pig iron, an…

    • after 1895

    View of molds being removed from steel ingots after they have solidified at an unknown manufacturing plant. During the production of metals, such as iron and steel, molds are typically used to form ingots, pieces of…

    • after 1895

    View of two workers tapping open hearth furnaces and carbonizing molten metal at an unknown manufacturing plant. Open hearth furnaces are used to burn excess carbon and other impurities out of pig iron, an intermediate…

    • after 1895

    View of molten iron being poured from a blast furnace ladle into an apparatus for the purification of pig iron, intermediate product of smelting iron ore, at an unknown manufacturing plant. Blast furnaces are used to…

    • after 1895

    View of a line of furnaces in an open hearth mill at an unknown manufacturing plant. During the conversion of iron into steel, raw materials such as molten iron are "charged" or deposited into the interior of a furnace,…
