       If you, your parents, your grandparents or relatives ever worked an industrial job in Conshohocken or West Conshohocken chances are their place of employment is pictured in the “Industry” chapter in Volume 1 of the 2 book set Conshohocken & West Conshohocken – People, Places and Stories.

       It was sad in the end watching these once industrial icons holding on.

       The Basic oxygen furnace at Alan Wood Steel was imploded on December 27th, 1990. You might remember it as the Big Red Steel Building. Shown in the top photo by Gene Walsh.

      The Alan Wood Steel Ore Bridge seen from River Road in Swedeland was imploded in September of 1989. As seen in the bottom 2 photos by Doris Markley.
