Ojibway Blast Furnace – 1935

Happy Friday everyone! This Friday’s old photo is dated August 18, 1935, and the caption reads “Canadian Steel Plant Ojibway”.

In this photo we’re looking east back towards Brighton Beach, the river is to our back, and that boat slip, is the one we saw back in this November post.

Does anyone know what the purpose was of the stuff at the base? There is an identical one at each end of the furnace. It almost looks like something that was left unbuilt, but I wonder if it didn’t have some other purpose as it appears the same at both ends.
