A pittsburg from the past.....this you probably did not know!

Very interesting fact about Pittsburg from 1927 [NATURAL GAS HOLDER {TANK} EXPLOSION]
I just received in an e-mail..my job in Richmond, VA
also involved these "Natural Gas Holders".....they expand like the cups
you used to carry.....when empty, the holders top was at ground level and
as you fill them they move up the steel superstructure...it's easy for me to
see how this happened.....acetylene torch on a full holder....you can also
visualize this, I'm sure......

WELL, THIS SURE IS INTERESTING!

This begins with an ad for AGH; be patient.

I have lived in and around Pittsburgh ALL of my life, and I
NEVER heard about this before! Who knew?!!

You must see this video!
I wonder why we were never taught about this back in school?

Watch until the end to see what is on the same location today!!!

The historical video, courtesy of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, is at:
