    Work crews change out the propellor of the SS Leviathan, a German ocean liner, while others paint the hull. 1910s.

    Don't you just love the safety protocols 1 guy looks to be hanging onto and standing on bolts another is painting while on only walk planks no railings cables or any other form of barrier in the event of a miss step, too many things to mention that no one would even consider working in those conditions in today's world
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    Not here in the USA. I do not know about other developed countries. I have seen way more dangerous work sites in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Jon has posted a few photos showing dangerous work sites. That one of the concrete deck collapse comes to mind right off.

    Something that caught my eye is the length of the painters poles, the small size of paint cans, and how close the cans are to the painters. Makes me wish it was a video.

    LOTS going on in that photo!!

    Looking at the gent who is dressed better than the others, left side, middle. I wonder if he is possibly the Captain of the ship?

    Yes, a lot going on in the photo. On the floor, under the ladder on the lower left of the photo, is that the wrench to take off the propellor lock nuts?
    I wonder if the guys with the long brushes have wire brushes, rather than paint? Maybe prepping for paint?

    Worse...I don't think those are bolts...I'm pretty sure those are rivets. Domed head and all...

    There are so many safety wrongs going on in just this picture, a person can't even imagine how many safety wrongs under and around and the ship.

    Possibly, though more likely the First Bos'n, or Engineering Officer.
    Like Scotty on Star Trek, without all the frenzied "...but Captain...!"
