The tall structure with ramp, closest to the camera is Blast Furnace No. 6, and the one at left, beyond the tanks is No. 7.

The red gantry crane at right was used to manage the huge piles of coke, iron ore, and limestone between the furnaces and the river (at far left & far right in this 360 degree view), and feed them into the blast furnaces.

    Paul, that is a super interesting subject and a great gigapan : ) There is aesthetic appeal and lots to explore once you enter the panorama.

Where in the World is this GigaPan?
