    for being fed manually, that's a lot of machine just to wrap neck with foil and spin a label on.
    With sugar [then] instead of corn syrup [now] I'll bet it tasted great though.

    This could also be a 1918 15-ton Couple-Gear gas-electric powered tractor-truck by the Couple-Gear Freight Wheel Company of Grand Rapids...

    The picture is labeled "Fageol factory workers. Oakland, California, 1918."
    Googling Fageol is very interesting, the factory produced Peterbilt

    For the Fageol pic, I was not able to find any other instances of the pic besides the one I found on social media. Usually I'll verify the pic or find a fullsize version by doing a Google Similar Image search, but even though this one came up with no results, it was too good to pass up. I did find lots of cool stuff at Fageol.com.
