    Is that a "shop dog" or a pile of rags on the lower right ?

    its a pile of rags. But surely there must be other things for 2/3rds of those men standing around watching could be doing.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Plenty of crew, no doubt, only 3 pair of hands actually doing anything. Remainder clearly trained by State [of your choice] Road-way Departments.
    Riggers look to have had a plan, LOTS of dunnage.
    The dog "Rags" though played safe, piling up spare cloth to make them THINK we was on station.

    How many bodies can you count in this picture?
    I wonder if setting the shaft is pretty much the end of the job or at least a fairly important step and the picture is almost like a commemorative for the entire crew, like maybe it will be the last time they will all be together?

    All it takes is some ingenuity, the right equipment and a cast of thousands! It looks like that extension caused them to take out a fair share of the wall to allow that shaft extension.

    It looks like in addition to bolting up the flanges there is some sort of large square key on the shaft flange face to line up between the shaft and what is driving it.

    Yes the improvised spreader and protection pieces would be essential to stop the slings slipping together or damaging the shaft, something I have to do with some of the odd lifts at work where no one's thought of just how the slings will try to slip/close up and crush the items casings usually.

    WAVES recruits in the training school at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, enjoy a joke with one of the hospital's Pharmacist's Mates, Patrick La Rosa, engaged in one of the frequent, if not favorite, Navy pastimes of "swabbing the deck”. From left to right are WAVES Jean Rindall, Naomi Edwards, Charlotte Kofoid, Nancy Crane, Carol Peterson, Geneva Dudley, and Jean Aldo. The WAVES are wearing Pharmacist's Mate striker badges on their sleeves, and the poster on the wall admonishes "Don't ever call it a boat! Unless you can hoist it aboard a ship”. 18 July 1945.
