Portraits of past make up Bethlehem Steel keepsake

It’s good that people are preserving the history of the Bethlehem Steel plant

The Morning Call

Bethlehem Steel photographer Peter Treiber went searching for his old negatives in company files in 1999, and he discovered something unsettling.

They were gone.

”There’s a lot of photos, but they’re spread all over,” he said. ”No one knows where they all are. I was kind of upset no one was really preserving the history of Bethlehem Steel.”

As a result, Treiber set out to create a record of the Steel in his own pictures, which culminated in the book, ”Inside Bethlehem Steel: The Final Quarter Century.”
