: This photograph depicts workers in a sand-floored room used to channel and cool molten pig iron. Blast furnaces burn alternating layers of iron ore and coke (as fuel) by forcing in large amounts of air, forming pig iron. This is the first step of the steelmaking process. This photograph belongs to the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company Audiovisual Archives, so it likely depicts a Youngstown company plant. View on Ohio Memory.
