I got a tour of Carrie Furnace today. This is about half a mile from my house. The largest blast furnace ever in the world when it was completed in early 1900s. Closed in 1982. My great grandfather worked here and his son, my uncle Jack did too. The top picture is “the volcano” where the molten iron poured out - well they had to drill it out - then it poured out of that hole - and then they had to fill it with a giant “mud gun” that stopped up the hole with clay. Temperatures outside the volcano were around 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
