Sheet and Tube Company Homes - Sun 4/29/18 noon
The Sheet and Tube Company Homes made up the first pre-fab concrete estate in the world. It was built between[masked] for steel workers. These 1-2 bedroom homes are small and sometimes housed multi-generations. There came a time when the company homes were sold as individual units and each has their own style. They are in disrepair. There are efforts to save them by Iron Soup Historical. We will visit the estate and one additional interesting building, which is off site and has roots to the steel industry. Photo Safari member Diane will take us on a guided tour of the area, approximately 4 hours. (See her Flickr album of photos from this venue: https://www.flickr.com/photos/148081906@N08/albums/72157694005721354) Fee $20 (CASH ONLY) to be paid at the event (goes to preservation efforts.) In addition, a waiver of liability must be signed at that time. This event will take place, rain or shine. Recommended: boots, older clothing appropriate for the weather, bottled water, flashlight, tripod, and a wide angle lens (if available) (Perhaps take a snack/lunch to eat on your drive or before the event.) The location is about 75 minutes from Pgh. If you want to car pool, we can meet near the Harmony/Zelienople exit of I-79N around 10:30am. Let me know if you want to meet there and I'll add info and directions in a comment.
