    Yep and standing almost in the middle of 4 crucibles pouring into 4 separate spews at the same time yeah what could possibly go wrong.
    But you know what it is safe to say that not a single one of us were there and they have obviously done it before.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    When working construction back in the 70s, there weren't any concrete pumps, so we used wheelbarrows to pour large projects all the time. The style the guys are using in the photo makes a lot more sense than the one wheel version, as long as you build the nice path like they have in this photo.
    I looks like those curved forms are for trolly tracks to be recessed into the bridge deck.

    It honestly just looks like a military parts shipping department. The black wire baskets on the right are feeding some of the lines with parts or something. The packages go down the line to the left through the tunnel for some reason. They might be heat shrink tunnels, those have been around for some time. It also appears to be in Indiana too, the sign in the back on the left appears to say Fort Wayne? Some of the lines are feeding large wooden slant front crates and it looks like tires are being packaged in the top right, back of the photo along with stacks of what appear to be small tires just to the left of those. It is a very large building too!
