I found this sight at Australia's first steel mill at Lithgow! The old mill is one of the few tourist attractions the town has these day!

A great perspective of this historical site, John! I like the composition a lot, and that sky just adds to it. Thanks for sharing, because I doubt that I will ever get to see this in person! <>< #1711647

I'm with Shirley. It looks like a tunnel or bridge behind the piece of steel. I like the shape of the old windows. Bet it was something in its day. #11714843
