America’s Industrial Age

Alfred Watson grew up in the shadows of the Pittsburgh steel mills lining the Ohio river and was fascinated with their power and size. Later, as a steel plant safety inspector, he would fill his portfolio with images of the steel giants along with the railroads that transported their finished steel products to the world.
When a job transfer took him to Buffalo in 1946, he focused his lens on that city’s waterfront industry including the huge boats that docked along the shore filling their holds with products for the nation.
