I think i see a very early engine hoist.Bud.
There's a strange sense of deja vu!
Against the back wall, directly behind the radiator of the second car, appears to be a Dixie Axle Stand. I have seen more Dixie's in Ford dealer shop photos than I have either KRW or Stevens.
To the left of the axle stand is a main bearing running-in machine. It is behind the engine lift, and appears to have a short block in it.
On the far left edge is a Hand Cranked Coil tester.
I am not sure that KRW made an Axle Stand that early but there are still a lot of Dixie's around. I like the Weaver Axle Stand the best, It is more versatile.
Walk into a shop today and compare--usually floor is very clean, very little "greasy" stuff around--mostly, I think, because modern car repair is doing computer fixes!!!
The picture and Trent's message makes me wonder if somewhere any of that equipment is still in use? I'll bet the vise still is! Bud.
wouldn't osha have a hay day in a shop like that.
I have a work bench in my garage that is an almost exact duplicate of the one in the picture! We rescued it about 30 years ago out of a garage that was being closed down in Oakland- same leg design, same drawer layout, probably galvanized sheet metal on work surface as well. Framing is all vertical grain fir.
