    and they were more healthy back then because of the crap they ate. The food they ate back then was all natural with a occasional
    this or that thrown. The food eaten now is all processed, they good stuff has gotten processed out.

    re: the Cannery picture. About 43 workers on that dock.
    One glaring detail hit me immediately. See it?






    Virtually all the men are posing, yet the women attend to work.

    I did notice the women continuing to work as the men pose. Also, of the 43 workers, men and women, I see only 4 with NO HAT, they are men or boys.

    Different times for sure.

    What might be the purpose of the linkage that protrudes from the front of the cab and the middle guy is resting his hand upon?
