Elizabeth Furnaces

This sure brings back memories. I grew up three towns from Etna and this is a photo of the Elizabeth furnaces. It was due for closure, but after WWII started they kept it open.

While a young lad, I passed it many a time when it was in operation but what I remember is the a huge empty field with a blast furnace in the middle. It has long been dismantled.
