City of Steel


Blast Furnace No 4
Night falls. The dark seashore spits flame, burns with a million lamps. 

The clang and boom and roar of the mills never cease, never slacken….

For this is a city with one urgent purpose.

Day and night, weekday and weekend, to make iron; to make iron into steel; to make enough steel. 

Steel for Britain. Steel from a dozen different lands. Steel for the world. 

Steel from Wales.
