When steel was king in Pittsburgh, a giant man forged of iron and steel worked the mills. Listen as storyteller Tim Hartman breathes new life into the Legend of Joe Magarac. Steel history and Pittsburgh are uniquely tied together. In 1873, Carnegie put all his money and effort into steel and began construction of the J. Edgar Thomson Steel mills. By 1898, Carnegie had purchased the Homestead Steel Works and the Carrie Blast Furnace. When Carnegie purchased the Allegheny Bessemer Steel Works in Duquesne, Carnegie Steel had the three largest mills in the Pittsburgh area. Improvements and the development of the new open hearth furnace technology allowed Carnegie’s steel dynasty to produce over 180,000 tons of steel a year.
