Caption: Blast furnace. Ruins of the 19th-century blast furnace at Foster's Falls, Virginia, USA. This furnace was built on Cripple Creek in 1881. From the 1920s, 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).
