Photo retrospective of Bethlehem Steel, Sparrows Point
The demolition of the L Blast Furnace at Bethlehem Steel in Sparrows Point recently brought about the end of an era to a Baltimore County icon. The mill was a place where generations of steel making families worked. During its many years of operation The Baltimore Sun has been there to document the company from industry giant to its final collapse. The Darkroom decided to take a look back at some of the memorable photos over the decades.

Thank you for these wonderful photos! My father worked at Bethleham Steel in the 50’s and 60’s as did many of the other men in my family and community. I was a young girl then. Viewing these photos gives me a deeper appreciation for their hard work and sacrifice.
