The Four Queens

Scunthorpe Steelwork's four blast furnaces. The blast furnaces are, from left to right, Queen Mary (1938), Queen Bess (1938), Queen Anne (1954) and Queen Victoria (1954). All four have been re-built many times over the years and all are serviceable. Operating at full capacity, Victoria can produce over a million tonnes of liquid iron in a year.
