Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Campbell Works car dumper
Description: When raw materials for making steel arrived at the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Campbell Works in rail cars, the most efficient way to get the material into the yard was to tip the car over. Seen here, ca. 1920, a machine called the car dumper was used to lift each car and turn it. The dumping of raw materials into piles was also called "baling." View on Ohio Memory.
