    Removing mill shoes?
    Why not, a good portion of them are sitting down...

    Who commissions a shot like this?
    How (why?) on earth do industrial photographers shoot such poor examples of workplace settings?
    Question might be who the photo is intended for, surely not board of directors or stockholders. If it's accountants or payroll, those men are screwed!

    googling "..... mill shoes" turns up more about steel toe footwear than industrial equipment...

    Excuse me but I don't know What is "An Old Mill Shoe"? What are the workers actually doing? Just trying to understand the photo. At least it seems that there are only 2 Bosses and the The rest are Workers.

    Looks like it might be the roughing mill of a hot rolling mill or mini mill. Huge opening for mill scale and big slides to change rolls on. But I am guessing.

    Slightly more context on "mill shoes" at the source here: https://historicpittsburgh.org/islan...3.B002.F06.I18

    Sometimes you'll see awkward labeling on these old photos; it probably gets inserted somewhere along the line between the photographer and the historical preservation association that is archiving the photo.

    Do we even have big stuff like that shown in #2397 in the USA anymore?
