Film Service: Locke Caption: Steel Mill Houses, Youngstown This photo must be returned to Ohio Writers' Project S E. Chestnut St., Col. O." This picture shows what appears to be an apartment building, a duplex, two houses and two sheds that are across the street from a large mill. The sheds are made from patching together various scraps of wood, and the beams are visible in some areas. The mill is long and rectangular a features ongoing rows of square-paneled, metal windows along the top and the middle of the building. The ground floor features an ongoing row of double-hung, divided windows. On top of the mill are seven cylindrical smoke stacks. Barely visible behind the mill is a hill with what appears to be several houses. At the bottom of the photo, a short section of train tracks are visible. View on Ohio Memory.
