Across the Delaware Valley, memorials have been going up, being shined and getting ready for displays and unveilings for Sunday’s 10th anniversary of 9/11. They all feature some portion of steel from the World Trade Center.
But a bulk of the steel went to Coatesville, where it originated. The Chester County town received hundreds of tons of the material its former Lukens Steel company made.
Peter Crimmins took a trip to Coatesville recently, where some of that steel will be displayed Sunday. He and Nat Hamilton compiled this slideshow of the steel and the many memorials in our area.
