Artist's Description

The Lithgow Blast Furnace site is the most significant symbol of the legacy of the three elements which created Lithgow: coal, steel and railways. The construction of the Main Western Railway line through the Lithgow Valley in 1869 started five decades of industrial development, which led to Lithgow being known as the Birmingham of Australia.

The development of a capacity to produce commercial quantities of steel in Lithgow was a major step in Australia’s journey towards becoming an independent nation.

(The above information appears, in part, on a plaque erected by the NSW Heritage Office, where a full history of the Blast Furnace can be found.)

Technostuff: Nikon D80, Sigma 10-20mm lens, handheld @ 10mm. Aperture priority, 1/125sec @ f16, ISO 200, Pattern metering, Auto Exp & WB.
