Towers - The Carrie Furnace

Photograph of three tower stacks at the Carrie Furnace, which supplied iron to the Homestead Works, which was located directly across the Monongahela River.


The audio segment for this image describes how terrifying it was to have to climb these huge towers in order to work on them. 

Mr. Gault was affectionately called 'the one handed electrician' because he didn't like heights and would work with only one hand while using the other to hold on for dear life!
