I can hear their wives now, "How do you expect me to get those things clean?" and "Don't come in my house with those things on"
HA HA...The middle guy has a 'stash and the guy on the right looks like he's doin' the Groucho thing by painting one on.
The nose always itch when your hands are really dirty..
You should have seen them before they got cleaned up for the picture!
Where's the guy in the suit and tie? How will they know what to do next?
Great picture of that special era. The car and the motor on the bench are Maxwell model 25. It had a 2 Main bearing crankshaft.
Wow Richard, I'm impressed!
At days end they would just stack the overalls in the corner.
Bet that tin shed was hot in the summertime! I can only think how the overalls smelled after a week or two!
I heard on good authority that the overalls aren't really yours until you can whistle to them and they come over and jump on you.
Or was that a dog?
Stack 'em? they look like they could walk away by themselves!!!
In all these pictures the mechanics are the only
guys not wearing a tie, everyone camps in a tie
sits in the dirt in a tie, goes on picnics in
a tie, washes their car in a tie. I don't get it
All that metal siding and roof. No insulation. Bet that was one heckuva cold place in the winter unless it's in a southern clime.
Dirty overalls? Haven't any of you ever completely stripped the running gear of a T after 90 to 100 years of grease and oil, at least back in the day these guys didn't need a hammer and chisel to get the old grease out!
Geez, look at that light bulb and extension cord!
Now you know why they called them "trouble lights."
Look at what's holding up the chain falls.
