I knew a guy that worked there, also.  He seemed to have done the same jobs as you.  I know they fabricated long girders, and he said they got 65-ft gons in from the PB&NE all the time.  I asked if it was Beth steel, and he confirmed that they got their steel from Bethlehem, because it was cheaper, even with USS literally at their back door.  I wonder what those gons were?  Logic would say Bethlehem products?

I see the roof of Levenson Steel poking up. I worked there for a few weeks in the early 60s painting steel for I-7 in eastern Ohio. I was transferred there following 2months doing the same job at their McKees Rocks facility in the leased former Pressed Steel Car plant. Even got to load over length girders in mill gone for a bit.
