    True Back Braking work, those big boilers consumed a lot of coal all loaded by hand.

    You can see stage of drawing the cartridge case is in? It's no little .50 cal. Lady on left has flat blanks to her right, and is holding a first draw. Another is probably in the dieset, punch visible directly to right of her [back to viewer] hand. The white 'paint' is drawing lube - mostly lard and kerosene. I'd estimate that press is 250-300 ton minimum, judging by the flywheel/ clutch; driven from the overhead, no less! Cannon cases aren't too different than shouldered arms, primarily straight taper, not bottle necked like rifle cartridges.
    I didn't hit web results for cannon brass, yet this depicts process clearly.

    That photo reminds me of the St. Joe Lead Mines of Southeast Missouri, the "Old Lead Belt." If you are ever South of St. Louis, take the tour of the Bonne Terre, (MO.) Mine. It is well worth your time.

    Newsboys. New Haven, Connecticut. 1909.

    This was my very first job. You had to be at least 15 to be a bagger at the local grocery store, but paperboys were allowed to be younger. I don't even know if this is still a job.

    I was going to try the paperboy delivery route thing but I lived 9 miles from town. Which would have meant I would have had to have gotten up at around 4 AM to do my chores around the farm then ride my bike to town load up with papers deliver them before people woke up to eat their breakfast then ride back home and get ready for school in time to catch the school buss since the town I went to school was 8 miles in the other direction of the town where I was going to be delivering papers.. I did actually deliver papers 2 weeks one summer after I had started work at the blacksmith shop. A friend of mine had to go on vacation with his parents so I took care of his route for the 2 weeks he was gone. Since the Blacksmith shop was in the same town it was no big deal to leave home a couple hours earlier than I normally did to get to work by 8 am but I made more working at the blacksmith shop that I did taking care of his route for him.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
