Glenbrook Steel Mill

Glenbrook Steel Mill

The City Daily Photo theme for July is “Chimneys”. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

Since 1969, the Steel Mill at Glenbrook turns iron rich sands from the West Coast into steel. The plumes from these chimneys are often visible from our deck, far in the distance across the Manukau Harbour, too far to discern the chimneys from here. This is an image from Summer at the time of the onion harvest in the area.
