    When I first saw the photo I thought of Government Cheese from the early 80s.

    Loading bricks.

    Appears to be a lot of manual labor like most operations during that era. Little to no automation.

    Being 1945, some of those will be discharged servicepeople. Just prior to this, sufficient production to supply the entire free world. Compared with more recent times, quality control was in hand, at the production level, not surplus levels of management. The work ethic and experience fueled the economy decades beyond, also creating a few new companies. All that equates into a portion of job satisfaction.

    Yes, at rear there are chassis that might not have hoods yet either. What a great solution; finish body upstairs, trundle them outside, feed down a ramp; mate to frame via the spindliest gantry on earth.
