    That appears to be a war time photo. Rather than safety glasses, I am guessing those glasses are just so they can see. My dad's vision was too bad to be in the military. That along, with being an experienced machinist kept him at home, building airplanes. Most of the men that age were either in the military or had some physical reason not to be.

    Just my guess..

    poor buggers look like squished sardines. No O.H.&S for those guys 7 lucky to live a reasonable lifetime= no longevity. Some times we have come a very long way but none of them would have wanted to loose his job to a machine. Now we place so much more value on life in the wotkplace at least.
