Perhaps not a work crew per se, but close enough for this beautiful photograph.

Note the wire rope suspending pipe section. Judging by the men's heads, at least 4" diameter.
My very first exposure to industry happened at Hoover Dam, way down in the turbine room, also where I saw my first serious lathe. Probably Monarch, American Tool Works, or Lodge & Shipley.
I imagine it is still there and operative. A good case for preventative and regular maintenance; they sure won't get another one down there.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...

The big thing around us at the present time is every farmer and wannabe landed gentry having a Pheasant shoot (sport).
every Sunday during the season there shoot resembles this rack of birds, they go out and shoot hundreds of birds for the privilege of taking a brace home - 2 birds. All for the grand total of £2000 per shoot. That makes each of the two birds they are allowed to keep £1000 each. Would you guys pay that for a turkey on a turkey shoot. All the other birds are just dumped or left to rot. When you look at the UK's ban on fox hunting you get a fair idea why the public get pea-ed off with the wanabe Elite. There are four shoots within 10 miles of us, one is ran by my brother and nephew - pillocks.

I don't go to Turkey shoot either simply because I have no willingness to show off my shooting skills or lack there of if that be the case. I also don't participate in skeet shooting events or plinking at targets in competitions. There is only going to be one reason for the barrel of any of my weapons to be pointed or aimed at anything in public. And that would be for self-preservation. All other rounds expended by me are done on my own property and usually not for the mere plinking at some target other than to maintain my skill set, even then I only require firing a few rounds if I am still good I quit then and there if I am bad then I need to fire more until I get good again if I can.
