Stripping Moulds from 4.75 Ton Ingots

Stripping moulds from 4.75 ton ingots of steel, in a place appropriately called the Stripping Sheds. The numbers on the moulds provided traceability to the cast from which the steel was made (probably the pot too). From here the ingots went to the Soaking Pits to be kept at an even temperature ready for Cogging.

Thanks to Eric Johnson for supplementary information.
