1-National-Analine-BW.jpg (169496 bytes)
 National Aniline plant. To the left of this view you can see the National Aniline plant along the Buffalo River. The Republic Steel plant is across the river to the right. Soon, very little from this photo will remain as demolition on the plant continues. Republic was scrapped in the 80's, the DL&W draw was removed years ago, the South Park bridge has been replaced with a newer one, and National Aniline is coming down now. If you look closely between the DL&W drawbridge & South Park Ave. drawbridge, you can see some sort of goop entering the river from the left side bank. Whatever that is, it's probably still down there.
