    There are more women than shells in that factory
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    I "think" that is a poised picture, the men in the picture don't look like factory workers.

    It's a posed photo, but look at the size of that building and the numbers of shells and personnel. If it was taken in modern day, it would take a skilled guy using Photoshop to come up with something like this.

    The phallic symbolism is way too obvious- even for 1917...

    Googled "Theodore Budd's Bog at Turkeytown", which doesn't naturally point to any one particular situation.
    Don't venture a search there if you want a pleasant morning read. Among other exploitations, Dear Mr. Budd used peckboxes of 10 quart capacity, not the correct volume of 8. . .
    Sincerely,
