Here's a shot of Thomas Iron Works. Not much left of the building. I thought the construction was interesting.



I took pictures all the way around and on the inside. They're here: http://public.fotki.com/DaveInTheHat/pictures_along_the_way/thomas-iron-works/

Interesting structure Dave. It almost appears that the floors above that are brick have been added to the concrete walls below at a later date. Where is this building? Thanks for posting, you always come up with cool stuff.

The Thomas Iron Works is in Hokendauqua, Pa. It's along the Ironton Rail Trail. There's other ruins along the trail. I took pictures of a few sections.

These are in Coplay, PA.

This is in Whitehall, PA.
