Pushing the coke - Coke Oven Plant, Stanton Works

A close-up view from one of the two coke pushers showing the pushing boom extended into an oven. The red-hot firebrick lining is apparent. Once ejected from the front of the oven, the coke will fall into the rail-mounted coke quenching car running along the front of the battery. It will then be moved to the quenching tower at the east end of the plant and doused with water.
