This was a scouting mission to find the location from which a panoramic photograph of Homestead Steel Works was shot in 1910. That photo: picasaweb.google.com/pheckbert/Homestead#5427949312697809954 Will open in a new tab or window.
In 1910, Carrie Furnace was making pig iron and Homestead Works was rolling it into steel sheets and beams. Today, Carrie Furnace is derelict, and Homestead Works has been replaced by the Waterfront Mall and condos!

Also, there are a lot more trees (blocking this view, unfortunately) on the hillsides now. It would be nice to rephotograph this under better lighting conditions, and find a way to remove the trees from the picture (without cutting any).
