I just love that photo. Everything in there I like: Nice weathered gon, inside dunnage, great ingot load.
Cold, not hot. Rough ingots for re-heating, re-rolling or re-melt. Nice chalk marks.
I rarely saw heavy steel loads like this with blocking. They just laid it in, and expected the best: ingots, slabs, blooms, billets, coil….
Interesting with two at one end, three the other. Not good weight balance.
Thanks for sharing! Made my day.

Ingots I assume. Not sure why the load is not braced.
