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.”
