My thanks to Eduardo Uranga, Jr. for sharing these photos taken in 1985. Eduardo worked for the advertising department at Ford Motor Co. and had the opportunity to take these photos for a 1985 Ford calendar. The first photo was taken in the switching yard where you can see the locomotive railway at the bottom in the back of the Ávalos plant. In the second photo, engineer Luis Rodriguez and Carlos Baeza were in the cargo area of the smelter’s “Plomera” department. Eduardo says it was a great experience to be able to take the photos. He sends his greetings to Luis Rodriguez and Carlos Baeza, who provided him the opportunity to take the photos.
