    I had to go get my reading glasses, to make sure that guy in the Top Hat was not Abraham Lincoln.

    That big ole machinery always impresses me.

    "I wonder how many of those ladies got their apron caught in the gears... "

    I agree, though I would add that ladies are not usually as unaware as their male counterparts.

    Lady 3rd from the back, (2nd) facing the camera, seems to have some sort of "doohickey" directly in front of her nose.
    Lady 3rd from the front, back to the camera, also seems to have similar sort of "watchamacallit" near her face.

    2nd lady facing camera certainly is not concerned with the drive belts probable a foot or so away. I imagine the noise in the shop probable would violate OSHA standards.
