This photo shows the interior of a motor vehicle repair shop, which was located in New Zealand. An array of machine tools can be seen that were run by either a steam or gasoline
engine that can be seen in the rear center of the image. The drive was through overhead line-shafting and belting. Seen in the image are: three lathes, two of which were originally
foot powered, a shaper, bandsaw and a drill press and one more unidentified machine behind the lathe at the far right.
