    That is very cool! I'm told that my Great Grandfather worked there when it first opened. There is a picture that my grandmother had of him and some coworkers in the factory. I need to dig that out and make copies of it.

    Crankshaft grinding dept looks pretty crazy. A cat wouldn't last long in there. Would take quite a few workers just to maintain and repair the machinery.

    I don't see any radios in the picture. The workers must have used the company wireless and ear buds as ear plugs to drown out the noise....
