Aware of the decline and imminent demise of many integrated steel mills in the United States and fascinated by their monumental architecture, machinery, and the culture of work and community that was inextricably connected to them, Joseph E. B. Elliott photographed the mills in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, from 1989 until their final shut down. With the support of Lance Metz he amassed more than one thousand new large-format photographs and hundreds of archival images and documents from the Bethlehem Steel Corporation and the workers in the plant. The result is an archive that preserves for future generations a record of the development, workings, and human dimensions of an integrated steel plant typical of machine-age America. A steel mill is a visually thrilling place, and Elliott's photographs embody much more than a technical record. The scale, architecture, and material qualities of the site are compelling references for an audience of the post-industrial age. This book appeals to the growing fascination with industrial archaeology and will be an inspiration for the preservation and reuse of these relic structures.
