    From just before the turn of the century, up to about the same time, my paternal grandfather was grading roads with a team of horses and a Fresno.

    That photo should hang in all classrooms in the USA. Then when the kids whine, "This is too hard", the teacher can point to that photo and say, "You have no concept of hard really is!!!"

    That appears to be the same engine as shown in an earlier stage of construction in post #976. Fascinating

    Minimal wages-deadly exposure-regions with little opportunity: but major profits

    I'm no advocate for modern unions; mining one of few deserving industries to receive their continued attention.

    And I'll vote Hemmjo's comment that children SEE evidence what toils are. In fact, aspect could be attached to every topic of history at least.

    Maybe there needs to be a requirement on every picture taken, an explanation of what it is so future generations wont have to wonder and speculate,"what were they thinking when they built that?", lol.

    As far as the what were they thinking when they built that the only way for future generations to understand is they will first need an understanding of what technologies were available back in the day. They will additionally need a comprehension of the mind set of folks during the industrial age where hard work actually did mean hard work which was sometimes dangerous almost always thankless but most of all beyond everything else there was PRIDE in having accomplished things that others were not even capable of dreaming of being able to do.

    All too often in this day and age, there is no longer pride in the workplace. The work ethic I grew up with doesn't seem to exist except in very small towns where everyone knows everything about everyone else and if someone is in a bad way, the whole community is behind them. Frank, I agree with you in your statement, I was being sarcastic in my post. Many times I see something in the junk and wonder what that was used for when it was built, and quite often find a new totally unrelated use for it.
