Gone to the boneyard for scrap during WWII

That little coupe gave its all.

A scrapper's torch keeps the spatter farther away and thus, less burns. A "macho"
torch would be short and burn the hell out of the macho man using it !!! Don't ask me
how I learned this. :-)

An interesting thing here is the boys still wearing knickers as late as 1942. Upper class kids would be my guess.

Looks like two oxygen tanks and an acetylene generator being used in the background

I couldn't help noticing the White truck. It looks like levers for maybe a wrecker boom. Is it scrap or are they using it?

Richard, I'll bet that they're still using it. It's parked in the aisle or roadway, not in with the scrap.

Steve, my mother bought me a pair of knickers in 1947 or 48. No one else at school wore them so I didn't like them and she never bought more than the one pair. We were pretty solidly middle class, though.

My first thought was now days they don't hardly let anyone into a scrap or junk yard let alone a lady with all her children. When I grew up my second home was at the junk yard which was also the scrapper.

At Olds we had 4 foot torches we used for scraping and for a time we used Oxygen Lances till we smoked up the building! Removing a plating operation and it was a very large job day after day! At Chevy we were cutting up a entire V-8 engine line when i caught my beard on fire!! That was the last time i shaved in 1976! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
