When Elsie Driggs was a child, she and her father passed through Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a train. From the train window she saw steel mills with smoke stacks shooting flames into the night sky. Inspired by this memory, Driggs visited Pittsburgh twenty years later to experience it again. When she arrived there, she was surprised to find that the flames had disappeared because steel was no longer made in the same way.
