I grew up in Birmingham, AL, an iron and steel town. I described Birmingham just this week to a group of friends and told of the beautiful residential sections thanks to steel money. Though steel production in Birmingham is pretty much has long gone, the residual is still to be seen. But not just in homes but in museums, park, you name it. The same is true in Pittsburgh where steel reigned supreme for a long time but is losing ground. Well it ain't over yet folks.
