    I grew up in Allentown. And, no, that's not me on the far left in that photograph.

    5 rows of at least 25 stations per row power shaft driven from under the floor " Note the drive belts passing through holes in the floor. It took very quick and nimble fingers to keep up a pace with everyone else

    After realizing that this next photo was another Allentown one, I poked around a bit. The massive industrial action in turn-of-the-century Allentown was well-documented. Some picks:


    Traylor Engineering. Allentown, PA. 1910.

    Hmm, I see 1 welder & 2 cutters. Anyone else see the same? Have a look at the helmets, Says volumes. Oh and the woman on the right is sure as _ell gonna learn what the one in the center would have learned at one time or another. The 6" cuff on her pants gives that lesson away. Some even learn to tie their boots up proper real quick also! Women or men makes no difference at all. We all seem to burn up pretty much the same. No big gender differences there. Yup! Bit of red hot slag slides down a slightly open boot or into a rolled up cuff and one gets to learning real, real quick. Oh ya and all the while looking around to see who's watching your silliness.
