Re: interesting gondola load

Dave, I find a little hard to believe that those are imported pieces of steel given the date of the photo. I'm not saying it didn't happen, but in 1958 there was imported steel coming into the the US?

A person once told me that the reason the US was so prosperous after the war was because we were the only country with manufacturing capability left in tact. USA products were shipped all over the world to help rebuild other countries. I'm sure by 1958 most other countries were back up and running by then but I would think most of their products were helping to rebuild the local economy of countries bombed heavily during the war.

The steel mills in Pittsburgh and other areas throughout the USA were fully capable of making more than we could consume during this time era.
I know in the 70's and 80's thru till today that imported good were flooding the US but I question this happening in 1958.

I offer this up as proof of what I'm saying.

Those boxes likely contain cold finish bar or small
diameter tubing;
probably imported.
We used to unload tonnes of that material from salt
water ships here.
