Taken just after the sun set over Duluth. Don’t you love that green glow?
On the middle level of the Poacher House. For a detailed view of the chart see ‘See Reverse’.
The control room for the whole of the plant. Sinterband here means one of the sintering lines. Temperatures, gasses, mixtures, speeds, and so on were centrally controlled here.
