....Pennsylvania, what a hand they've been dealt,
once thriving, not an example of the Rust Belt;
seven thousand souls are living her today,
there were that many in the mill, when the town was in the hay.
It's an industrial landscape, full of broken dreams,
financially distressed, no help is close it seems;
they've even closed the high school, the student bussed away,
let's all hope that they....will see a better day.
Top: A bridge over the Monongahela River, road to Pittsburgh.
Middle: The coal loader at Union rail yard, still in use.
Bottom: Abandoned rail cars used for molten steel, the last car carried ingots.
