Buy Gold and Silver in Birmingham, Alabama

Birmingham, which is Alabama's largest city, was founded during the Reconstruction period that followed the Civil War in 1871. It rapidly developed into a major industrial center with its main focuses being on steel, iron, mining and railroads. It was dubbed "The Pittsburgh of the South" due to the similarities between the industrial structures of the two cities.
