All Alone Am I... - Republic Steel
Author: refarkas

It was August 1973 in Canton, Ohio, and I had a 50mm lens on my camera. To make things worse, I was using Kodak High Speed Ektachrome push-processed to ASA 400. In a field all by itself was a Republic Steel Alco switcher, but going closer was not an option. Here is the original scene and a closer crop from the same slide.

I like picture 1 - not only with the "lonely" switcher but a view of the plant.
Is it still in operation?

I believe Republic Steel still has a plant in Canton, but this location as it is in the photo is gone.
