Pat Gavin Photography

Photographer, urban explorer, and antique collector from Baltimore, Md. Be sure to check out the links below to my Flickr accounts and please reblog my stuff if you like it.

Abandoned Basic Oxygen Furnace plant. One of the largest buildings I have ever been inside. I was blown away by the sheer scale of everything. The cranes to lift the ladles are triple cranes with a max of 400 tons of lifting power. That is like lifting 200 Toyota Camrys at once. This plant was so dark that taking photos was nearly impossible in many areas. There is an entire side dedicated to continuous caster that is not even shown.
