Caption

The Bethlehem Steel plant pictured here is very different from when the plant was in operation. The paved road in front would have been filled with railroad tracks that once served the plant. Directly in front of the furnaces would have stood a powerhouse with seven giant gas engines which produced 25 cycle AC power. The only surviving element is the flywheel and generator from #7 engine. Music scales now echo during the summer from the amphitheatre.
