chefraekwon Eric Thomas, Gap from dock to Noseblunt stall. Like most Midwestern cities, Joliet was dependent on manufacturing industries, in the late 1800s and early 1900s the Limestone and Steel industries thrived in Joliet. Opening in 1869, The Iron and Steel Works was the second largest steel mill in the United States. The mill eventually became unprofitable and all operations were ceased by the early 1980s. Joliet started to decline rapidly and unemployment reached 26% in 1983. Photo by@mspizz. #GRAINSvideo #joliet #cityofsteel 1w

  •   chefraekwon Tommy Lyons, Taildrop Kickflip. In 1922 the Radium Dial Company opened a factory in the old Ottawa High School. Local women, hired to paint watch faces, ingested deadly amounts of radium after being instructed to lick their paintbrushes to sharpen them. Many of the women began to suffer from anemia, bone fractures and necrosis of the jaw, a condition now known as radium jaw. After the plant closed and before it was dismantled many residents took items from the factory for their homes. This spread the contamination even further.
