Artist's Description

Blast Furnace Park is a monument to Lithgow’s industrial history. It was here that the first iron and steel were cast in Australia. William Sandford established the blast furnace in 1886 and it continued production until 1928 when the entire industry was move to Port Kembla.

The site has now been developed as a park around the remains of the pump house and the furnace foundations.

This is the last image taken at this site in 2009 as I spent New Years Eve there with my wife chasing a sunset but got storm clouds instead.
