Lithgow NSW - Remains of the Ferranti Blast Furnace No 2

Rosalie Dale

Stockinbingal, Australia

Artist's Description

These tenacious poppies seem to thrive in this unusual location, and provide photographers with a wonderful exercise in juxtopositioning!
Lithgow Blast Furnace (just west of the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia) … a site which is now the only remaining relic of Australia’s iron-making history. Walls are barely standing – these structures are a sad shell of what they were. The Furnace was established in 1886 by William Sandford, and it continued production until 1928 when the entire industry was moved to Port Kembla on the South Coast.
