2003: Bethlehem Steel

Molten metal heats in the Furnace at Bethlehem Steel at Sparrows Point. Owned by The Bethlehem Steel Corporation, which was based in Bethlehem, Pa., which was once the largest producer of steel in the United States. It was a major supplier of steel for ships, ammunition and other ordnance during World War I and World War II, and it stood as a symbol of the industrial might of a nation.
