Steel Mill

Here are some shots of the old Steel Mill here in Weirton that my wife took while we were on our way to Tomlinson Run last Friday.
Our town used to be a very busy one when the mill was still going but when the union started to demand certain things, most of it were closed. Now just some part of the mill are operating while most parts were not anymore.
My dad worked in this mill for years and so are my two brothers.
Now, they are just old buildings.
The river separating West Virginia from Ohio.
Thanks for following this blog, will be following you back too!
