Caption: Blast furnace for the Andover Iron Works (Waterloo Forge), Phillipsburg, New Jersey, USA. Built in 1848, the ruins of this building were photographed in around 1934. This photograph is from the Albert T. Keller collection of the American Iron and Steel Institute. The collection consists of historical photographs of blast furnaces used in the iron and steel industry. A blast furnace is where iron ore is heated to high temperatures in the presence of oxygen, with the carbon content controlled to produce types of steel (an alloy of iron and carbon).
