The temperature was well into the 90's when my photography buddy, Bill and I headed to Sloss Furnaces for a little field trip. ( In our defense, we did question whether it was a good plan.) About 15 minutes into our shooting expedition we confirmed that our timing was off by about 2 months. We forged on. The heat we were experiencing was nothing compared to the temperature when Sloss Furnaces was in its prime. This place has been lovingly preserved, painted, and tended. There is truly a feeling of stepping back in time when Sloss Furnaces was instrumental in making Birmingham the "Magic City."
An earlier Sloss post was on July 3,2008.
