    #608 It's amazing how wars can get economies going even after depressions & also that governments cant find/create the requisite resources & stimulii to fix most recessions without wars. They suddenly find dough to SHELL out overnight.

    If OSHA was on the job, they'd be wearing a harness and safety line — and there would be doors on their little floating cubicles. (Wouldn't want to forget where you're at — and step out for a break.

    Reckon they would've been sorted into sections by another party beforehand. My first admin job was sorting (& other stuff) for the filing guys but less there than that lot. Of course the right hand guy is obviously the head guy...................as he steps out on the chap on the left's head, while descending for a loo break.

    I bet the slick tires on the front of that one on the left really help with traction.

    Re: WWII shell factory workers
    A pre-digital era ¨photoshop¨. How did the four front line workers - conveniently, two men, two women get into the tightly packed rows of shells? Removal/insertion from above? Temporary planking walkway? Part of a WWII bond drive ad I suppose. Certain to fool many.

    I don't know. Unless the angle of the photo belies the actual amount of space between them. Still, the question might be — what are they doing?
