Lucernemines Coke Ovens at Night

This photo of the Lucernemines Coke ovens was taken in 1972 by Joy Fairbanks. Long-time residents of the area and travelers who traveled Route 119 near Homer City will remember the glowing nighttime skies when the ovens were in production. The photo was taken by Joy shortly before the ovens closed when they could no longer met stricter air quality standards.
