Building a steel mill

1953 Levittown Pennsylvania USA and the mammoth task of building a steel mill. and of the Levittown type of housing and dwellings that sprang up as a result of the new factory. From a historical point of view it's well interesting but from a perspective of modern today it's probably bordering upon something quite the opposite!

      We don't make anything anymore, we buy it all from China. Even our drug economy is now outsourced. We used to make our own meth, now we get it all from Mexico for cheaper then we ever made it. That's all the good the stupid Sudafed restrictions did. Some joker even made a video on how to turn cheap Mexican meth into Sudafed.

  • The America of my childhood. No problem can't be solved, no obstacle that can't be overcome! The can-do period of modern America, or maybe that's the rose colored glasses of remembering the past. Another good one pal!

  • If this is the Fairless Hills plant, which I believe it is, I worked in a power plant situated on that property a yr. or 2 ago.
    The only thing that remains of the USS mill is a roller mill that takes huge slabs off the ships from Canada and converts them into rolls of sheet steel.
    The place was huge at one time. Weeds trees and shrubs now grow through the what must be square miles of concrete and asphalt. Scrap companies are now chopping up and loading up the works and sending it away on rail More..

  • From wikipedia:

    U.S. Steel's production peaked at more than 35 million tons in 1953. Its employment was greatest in 1943 (during World War II) when it had more than 340,000 employees; by 2000, however, it employed 52,500 people.

    Good one Cleaner!
