Bridges and Ferries of our Inland Waterways

Bridges and Ferries of our Inland Waterways. Ferries were probably at their key importance during this period, prior to the railroads.

To my roots, a four-and-a-half minute video of Burlington, VT and the ferry crossing of Lake Champlain to Port Kent, NY, across the widest part of the lake.

We had at least two ferry crossings in Calcasieu Parish. One crossed the Calcasieu River and they other crossed the West Branch of the same river. The names are: Anthony Ferry Road and Perkins Ferry Road. The first one was part of the Old Spanish Trail. The OST crossed the Sabine at Niblett's Bluff. There was a ford there.

3 or 4 miles??? That would have put you close to the old J&L Mills. Big changes in the Burgh since then.

Yes John - There was a mill a mile or two to the south on the Mon which closed while I was there(80 to 84). I think the one what you are talking about John. You could smell it sometimes when it was still operating.

Northbound passengers see Jamestown Island much as the first colonists may have approached it over 400 years ago, on May 13, 1607.

Impressive to see that little patch of buildings against all the green and water in a hostile land

Clairton is still in operation as US Steel's main coke producing plant. The only other works that USS has in operation are the Irvin and Thomson Works. The Homestead, Duquesne and National Tube Works are all gone. Also gone are J&L's South Side and Aliquippa Works. Another major manufacturer who's gone is Mesta Machine, who made much of the steelmaking equipment.

If I remember my history right the J. Edgar Thompson works were the heart of Carnegie Steel, which was the key piece to the formation of US Steel, which was the largest company in the world when it was formed. I guess I will look it up!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Thomson_Steel_Works

excerpt
The mill occupies the historic site of Braddock's Field, on the banks of the Monongahela River east of Pittsburgh. On July 9, 1755, in the Battle of the Monongahela, French and Indian forces from Fort Duquesne defeated the expedition of British General Edward Braddock, who himself was mortally wounded.
Braddock's Field also was the site of a rally of rebellious militiamen and farmers during the Whiskey Rebellion, prior to a massive march on the town of Pittsburgh on August 1, 1794.[1]
The site is on the banks of the Monongahela, which provides cost-effective, riverine transportation of coke, iron and finished steel products.
The Edgar Thomson Steel Works was designed and built because of the Bessemer process, the first inexpensive industrial process for the mass production of steel. In the process, air blowing through the molten iron removed impurities via oxidation. This took place in the Bessemer converter, a large ovoid steel container lined with clay or dolomite.[2]
In the summer of 1872, while in Europe, Andrew Carnegie learned about the Bessemer process. He returned to Pittsburgh with plans to build his own Bessemer plant. Some of the partners, stockholders, and connected people were William Coleman, Andrew Kloman, Henry Phipps, David McCandless, Wm. P. Shinn, John Scott, David A. Stewart, James Robb Wilson and Thomas Carnegie. The firm was known as Carnegie, McCandless, and Company.[3] The plant was named after J. Edgar Thomson, who was the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
On January 1, 1873, ground work began on the Edgar Thomson Steel Works in Braddock Twp. It has been estimated that the plant was built for about $1.2 million. The mill was built by Alexander Lyman Holley, who found a manager to run the mill, Capt. William Jones, a Civil War veteran. On August 22, 1875, the Edgar Thomson Steel Works' hulking Bessemer converter produced its first heat of liquid steel, destined to become 2,000 steel rails for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Within one year of beginning production the mill was able to create 32,228 tons of steel rail.[4] The district was known as Bessemer, later incorporated as North Braddock. The plant's first general superintendent, William R. Jones, described the steel mill writing, "This is the most powerful rail mill in the country; amongst its notable productions are a 62 lb. rail 120 feet long, rolled in five minutes from the time of drawing the bloom from the furnace and 600 rails 56 lb. per yard rolled in 11 1/2 hours."[5] With continual improvements in production the mill was capable of producing 225 tons of steel rails per day.[6]
In 1892, the workers of the plant took part in one of the most serious strikes in U.S. history. The Homestead Strike arose when Henry Clay Frick, an associate and partner of Carnegie, took over while Carnegie traveled to Scotland. Frick attempted to cut the wages of the steel workers.[7] The steelworkers at the Duquesne and Edgar Thomson Works joined the strike and shut their mills down in sympathy.[8] Frick took extreme measures. He brought in thousands of strikebreakers. When he sent in 300 Pinkerton guards to protect the strikebreakers, a riot broke out, resulting in 10 deaths and thousands of injuries. To prevent any further bloodshed, the governor, Robert Pattison, sent two brigades to stop the fighting. Carnegie, McCandless and Company recommenced operations with non-union immigrant workers.[9]
In 1901, Carnegie sold the Carnegie Steel Company, including the Edgar Thomson Works, to J. P. Morgan, Elbert H. Gary and other investors, as part of the foundation of U.S. Steel.
In October, 1984 a Merrill Lynch analyst infamously predicted that U.S. Steel would close Thomson within a few years.[10]

Back in the day, circa 1908.
