Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's South Chicago Works
Description: The blast furnaces at Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's South Chicago Works in Chicago, Illinois, ca. 1920-1929. James A. Campbell's success in steel manufacturing was not limited to the Youngstown regional area. As president of Youngstown Sheet and Tube, he led the 1923 purchase of the South Chicago blast furnace from the Steel and Tube Company. Campbell immediately spent millions of dollars on new construction and modernization of the plant. Located on the Kalumet River, near the river's outlet to Lake Michigan, the South Chicago Works quickly became a valuable distributor of foundry, malleable, bessemer, and basic pig iron for the company.
