Special thanks to John Slowikowski for identifying the location for us. "Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Steubenville,OH plant no 1 and no 2 blast furnaces and the bridge which isn’t used anymore goes to the Follansbee,WV coke plant which is still in production " Great photo! I have no date or photographer info for this photo but guessing 40's or 50's.
